Spring Sipper Gin Cocktail

by | May 3, 2018

Last spring I was invited to a baby shower for one of my expecting friends. Now, I have attended enough baby showers to know that I don’t really enjoy these types of gatherings — all the games and constant questions about the baby just wear me out. Normally I just mail a gift and call it a day, but this particular friend is very close and the invitation reeled me in with a blub about serving craft cocktails.

As I walked into the shower, where everything was overly decorated with pink, I made a beeline for the cocktail table. The cocktails — all pink, naturally — were served in different types of glasses, and there was one in particular that looked beautiful and appealing to me. It was in a martini glass and there was a tiny flower floating on the top. I picked it up and took my first sip of a delightfully sweet, citrusy drink. Four cocktails later, the baby shower wasn’t so bad!

The hostesses happily shared their recipe with me. It is not only visually appealing but also delicious. Just beware … you might find yourself participating in a race to change a baby’s diaper. Cheers!

Sandi Grigg

Growing up in a small town in the foothills of North Carolina, Sandi always dreamed of living on the coast. In her youth, she was always by the water; she was raised tending a big garden and stomping around in the creek. She spent her adolescent days on a Jet Ski or fishing on Lake James, N.C., and she and her friends would camp and hike the Linville Gorge. Attending the University of North Carolina at Charlotte she felt like she was getting out of my small-town box and living the city life; at the same time, she was getting a little closer to the ocean. Moving to Wilmington has been a dream come true, and the life she has created has been a blessing. She enjoys kayaking the Cape Fear, fishing the shores of Carolina Beach, and picking up seashells and shark’s teeth wherever she is. At home, she loves to cook and play with her dogs in the backyard. She also enjoys DIY home improvement endeavors. No outdoor shower, fire pit or flower bed is too big of a job! Being a part of the North Brunswick Magazine and South Brunswick Magazine team has taught Sandi that you really can enjoy your career.
