Pilgrim 61

Pilgrim 61

2oz London dry gin (Sapphire)
1 tsp Sugar
1/2oz Lemon juice
1oz Cranberry juice (RW Knudsen*)
5oz Brut sparkling wine
Lemon twist

1. Mix the first four ingredients (shaker/ice). COLD
2. Pour into a flute/collins glass or 1/2 the recipe and pour into a martini glass
3. Pour in sparkling wine
4. Garnish with a lemon twist and cranberry or two.

If serendipity participates then you may call the Pilgrim 61 a Smiling Pilgrim, but only if your twist bends and you’ve got two cranbrries. If you have three P61’s, then you will be a smiling pilgrim.

*The cranberry juice was not my first choice, would've bought Ocean Spray, but was in a natural food store, so the sugar may be reduced if using a sweeter juice.

Next time you're out, ask for the Pilgrim 61. 

Happy Thanksgiving, enjoy.

November, it was May not too long ago.
A lot of hours, but not enough to complain.
Participated. Present. Involved.
Full of myself, but I think I've done good.
Work and play and rest seem to blend.
