Mixology Monday With The Leveretts - Luxardo Lemoncello G&T

May 02, 2022  •  Leave a Comment

Hey there!

Today we're sharing another variation of a simple cocktail, the G&T or Gin and Tonic. We stumbled on these pink lemons in the local grocery store and knew we wanted to do something with them.  They are a little smaller and less tart than "regular" lemons and have a  sweeter flavor. They kind of look like tiny grapefruits. We added Lemoncello to amp up the tart lemon notes and we thought this would pair nicely with Luxardo Maraschino Liqueur for a a hint of cherry. We hope you enjoy! As always, if you make any of our drinks, take a picture and share them with us online! Instagram ---> @staynfocusimages
