To begin the celebration of my last birthday before I go on Medicare, we went out to breakfast this morning. Their menu had probably a dozen cocktails appropriate for breakfast. I opted for the Breakfast Martini, a combination of Saphire gin, Cointreau and fresh squeezed orange juice, served in a cocktail glass. It was really, really good. I'm finding more and more that I prefer gin in a mixed drink rather than my usual vodka. Gin actually adds flavor and not just alcohol. I'm thinking how nice these would be for a brunch. Although mine was done in a cocktail shaker, it would be easy to do a pitcher and keep chilled. Thought I'd pass this along to other. Enjoy.
