the weather in frankfurt has been glorious over the past month – temperatures of 35c and higher plus plenty of sunshine. as a result we’ve been eating lots of salads and drinking lots of water.
however, one evening this week this is what we sipped – a nicely balanced herbal tangy last word. 1 shot gin, 2/3 of a shot green chartreuse, 2/3 of a shot maraschino liqueur and 2/3 of a shot of lime juice shaken with ice and then strained into a chilled glass. garnish with a lime twist and a maraschino cherry. discard the lime twist before serving.
i love the colours - it reminds me of a watermelon.
