June Third: A Cocktail Inspired by Gilmore Girls

Anyone who has seen Gilmore Girls knows the significance of June 3rd, but since it's a pretty huge spoiler I'm not going to go into detail. All I'll say is:

  1. If a gimlet and a margarita were to have a baby, it'd be this drink.
  2. Because it as delicious as it is boozy, it's a good one for drinking your feelings. 
  3. You've been warned
