“It is getting to be gin drinking weather.”
I once overheard a conversation between two Southern gentlemen expressing that is was time for the two of them to get together again for drinks sometime soon.
The elder of the two, a genteel man with a lovely drawl said rather thoughtfully,”Well you know…it is getting to be gin drinking weath-ah.”
I think of that conversation every year when the weather gets hot. And, it’s been plenty hot for a lot of us lately and not just in the South.
While I think any weather is good gin drinking weather, the gentleman was right – there’s nothing more refreshing on a hot summer evening than a gin and tonic with a crisp linen napkin.
(Except maybe a big ol’ glass of sweet tea!)
