      Tomato Style, Straight Outta the Garden!

      We had a puddle of juice in the bottom of a bowl used to hold sliced garden tomatoes. I mixed it with Bombay gin and a splash of olive juice.

      Behold!

      My version, much more basic, akin to a Tom Collins:

      Fresh squeezed limes made into a limeade
      2 (or more) shots of Tanqueray
      add a splash of seltzer for bubbles

      enjoy.

      OP that looks awesome

      I have a gin & juice cocktail that we made at this place I worked at
      it might seem girly but it's delish
      just make it for your gf, she will be impressed

      Lavender Gimlet:
      steep some dry lavender flowers in white grape juice by simmering in a pot for ...20 minutes(?)
      chill in fridge until cool, strain out flowers, make cocktail with blue sapphire gin to taste

      it's sooooo good

      Just stepped things up with v2.0.

      Added a few dashes of Worcestershire sauce and couple dabs of Tapatio hot sauce.

      Wow!

      I'm never having a Bloody Mary with vodka again.

      Nice! Looks great.

      And I never thought about using gin in a Bloody Mary. I'll have to try that sometime.

      Seriously!

      It seems like such a simple idea and I never thought to try it until I had a bowl of tomato juice staring at me.

      Gin makes fruity drinks more adult. I mix it with lots of juices, vodka. I had my first Gin and Juice while sitting in traffic at a massive college weekend in Atlanta. A dude was serving them out of the back of his car. lol
