If you follow me on Facebook you will know that Friday afternoon, once I have picked the boys up from school, done the afternoon chores and made some pizza dough, I like to sit in the garden and enjoy a glass of something cold and usually alcoholic. 😳
I usually share a sunset photo of my Friday tipple. Often that is a gin and tonic (with pink grapefruit slice) or a glass of white wine. But sometimes it is great to sit back and enjoy a cocktail.

We had friends over last Friday so I wasn’t sat in the garden relaxing at 5pm. I was running about the house, trying to work out how my floor could look so filthy even after I had swept it! Boys and white tiles do not mix!!!! I want a nice brown floor when we move home!!!!! Which FYI should be within the month…..HAPPY DANCE!!!! Actually I won’t have a brown floor then, just bare concrete, which I am hoping also won’t show the dirt. But I can tell you once the (brown) wood goes down I will be a happy chick!

Anyway, I didn’t share my Gin Fizz with you last Friday, so I am sharing today instead, ready for you to sip over the weekend. Get the strawberries and gin (or vodka) macerating tonight. Go on you know you want to 😉

What is the weather doing where you are? Here in WA we are meant to see 38ºC (100F) again. So this cocktail is perfect for serving over plenty ice.  If you are more in the mood for curling up by a fire and drinking something a little warming then, you might want to try my Whisky Apple Twist.

I am very excited to share these photos with you, they sum up why I love our little part of Australia! How beautiful does the lake look!!!!!

  • 200 g strawberries
  • 2 tsp caster sugar
  • 2 springs of rosemary
  • 200 ml gin or vodka
  • Ice
  • 500 ml moscato - See notes
  • 4 strawberries (for garnish)
  • 4 small springs of rosemary (for garnish)
Instructions
  1. Carefully hull the straberries and then cut them in half.
  2. Place the strawberries and rosemary into a plastic tupperware container, sprinkle over the sugar and then pour over the gin/vodka.
  3. Clip on a lid and place the container in the fridge for 24 hours.
  4. Strain the gin/vodka and then pour into a large jug of ice.
  5. Top up with the moscato and then serve garnished with a strawberry and a sprig of rosemary.
Recipe Notes

I like to use moscato as it gives a great additional sweetness. However if you are a fan of a drier cocktail then you can use prosecco.

For a cocktail lighter in alcohol, replace the wine with lemonade or soda water

    I’ve just bought a new gin and was wondering what to do. Now I know! Love the idea of a gin fizz.

      I love a good gin.
      Most times that is in a gin and tonic with a slice of grapefruit. Or some lime.
      But this cocktail is great when you want something a bit special 🙂

  3. If I had that lake view I’d be in my garden on Friday afternoons as well! Especially if I had a pitcher of these on hand, and then I’d be happily useless the rest of the evening. Thanks for sharing! PS: Best of luck with the move! I had very dark brown floors at one point and every piece of dust stuck out – I couldn’t keep them clean! I hope yours work out better than mine! If you ever discover self-cleaning floors, I’ll be the first to invest in them!!

      Oh no don’t tell me that!!! We had a wooden floor in a rental house a few years back and it didn’t show anything. I am hoping to recreate that effect!!! I defiantly don’t want something that shows every bit of dust!!!!! Arrrrrgh.

      I agree. Self cleaning floors would be top of my list too!!!!

      1. The really dark brown shows dirt, but not as bad as white. I have medium brown and ash colored floors in my current house and they do a pretty good job of hiding the dirt, even with a 90 pound puppy running around.

          Phew!
          I love those dark shiny floors you see on Pinterest, but I have gone for a light oak colour. Hoping that will do the job. I like the fact your ash coloured floors can hide puppy dirt!!!! There is hope for me with two dirty children!

  4. Oh, how I wish I was there. It’s freezing here in the UK! I could still drink one of those gorgeous looking cocktails though 🙂

      Thank you Helen.

      I remember the end of November in the UK, the nights are drawing in and it is time to light the fire. The run up to Christmas was my favourite time of year over there!

    What a beautiful vista, no wonder you love living there. I have a flourishing rosemary plant at the moment – the only thing i haven’t killed 🙁 I’m partial to gin so this is a perfect tipple for me.

      It is my little piece of heaven.
      Gin is always a good idea!!! Well apart from with breakfast 😉
