Classic Gin and Tonic Cocktail Recipe

RecipesJessica PeddicordComment

Remember how last month I shared that Mint Juleps fall in the category of drinks I really wish I liked? Well, Gin and Tonics tend to fall in that category too - unless I can squeeze in a bunch of extra lime! Can you tell I prefer sweet drinks?

While a G&T isn't my go-to, I know that many of my girl friends love it! Plus, the ingredients are just too darn cute to paint, and this illustration may be my fav of the 2017 cocktail calendar. Keep reading below to see how you can get a print of your own!

If you love making the ordinary days a bit more extraordinary like I do, why not bring a little bit of it into your home decor?

Each month, I am releasing an art print from the 2017 Cocktail, featuring the cocktail coordinating with that month from the calendar! The art prints will debut during the first week of each month, making it the perfect way to toast to the start of the month!

This Gin and Tonic art print would be the perfect addition to your kitchen or bar cart, darling! It will be right at home next to the classic stemware that has been passed down through the generations of your family, and that gold bar accessory set you just picked up from Target! These art prints are available in 8x10 and 11x14 sizes, perfect for apartments and homes alike.
