Keep Calm and Have a Drink

Every time someone gets engaged, I get the urge to plan a wedding.  I think I have a million pins on Pinterest about wedding food, attire, reception ideas, invitations, save the date, you name it.  One idea I love is having a signature wedding cocktail.  I also love the drink menu signs.  I love this one from Etsy

I love gin and tonics, but I know not a lot of people like the "pine tree" drink, as some of my friends call it.  I think a cucumber gimlet is the perfect compromise.  The best cucumber gimlet I've had was at Ocean Prime, it's light and refreshing and super yummy.  Ocean Prime isn't hiding the recipe either, I found this right on their website.  I suggest mixing up a few the next time you want to have something different, and of course order one if you go to Ocean Prime.  

This drink is SOOOO good.  I love gin so this one is a no brainer to order.
