The Pink Limey
3 oz Tanqueray Rangpur Gin *
Watermelon Basil Juice
* you can substitute any good quality gin and a 1 tablespoon of lime juice.
Directions: Pour the gin (and lime if substituting) over ice and then fill the glass with the watermelon juice.
Notes: Tanqueray Rangpur is a variety of their delicious gin that has very strong and wonderfully bitter overtones of Indian rangpur lime. It has recieved mixed reviews, but we tend to like bitter flavors so we enjoy it. I am lucky enough to have a wife who is a wonderful food blogger and she made this deliciously sweet watermelon basil juice which paired very well with the strong bitter taste of the gin. Feel free to be generous with the gin; I always am.
