WE’re into all things…rings…on an all-new episode of Love After Lockup! Michael finds himself in a sticky situation while ring shopping with Sarah — knowing full well that his heart is with Megan. Meanwhile, Clint is left waiting at the altar and wondering if Tracie has become a runaway bride. This week’s featured cocktail is called “Put A Ring On It,” with a mix of gin, lime, Champagne and a splash of grenadine. The glass gets blinged out with a sparkling ring of sugar.
Recipe: Put A Ring On It
- 1 ½ oz. freshly squeezed lime juice, plus more for rims
- 2 oz. gin
- 2 tsp. superfine sugar
- 4 oz. Champagne or sparkling wine, chilled
- Fine sanding sugar, for rims
Prep: Mix lime juice, gin and superfine sugar in a cup, until the sugar has completely dissolved. Chill for several hours or until ready to serve.
To serve: Dip rims of glasses in remaining lime juice and then in sanding sugar, to create the ring. Pour Champagne and lime juice-and-gin mixture into a pitcher filled with ice. Stir and pour into sugar-rimmed glasses. Add two to three drops of grenadine to each glass.
