gemini, the most verbal and articulate of all the signs, will eloquently put to you that which she wants to know without so much as a flinch. “voulez vous coucher avec moi c’est soir?” after a few martinis, she’ll be looking for a bedmate, or two. think you can resist her girlish demeanor and naughty gemini ways? doubtful. she’s just too charmingly innocent, but beware it’s an act.
why lemon? because this girl is lemon-scented clean by day, and dirty by night. lemon is a cutting and astringent type of fruit, and for that reason it belongs to the sharp thinking planet of mercury. those under this dominion are light on their feet, quick thinking, fast talkers… gemini IS life in the fast lane. so get cleaned up for this party girl… drink lotsa lemon.
COUCHER AVEC MOI
1 1/2 gin or vodka
1 1/2 oz raw organic simple syrup
1 oz lavender water
3/4 oz limoncello*
1/2 oz fresh lemon juice
2 sprigs rosemary
muddle rosemary with limoncello in mixing glass. after well-macerated, add remaining ingredients. shake with ice and strain into martini glass and garnish with rosemary or lemon slice.
*simple syrup is a mixture of sugar and water in equal parts. place both in container and shake or stir until dissolved. store in fridge.
NOTE: be sure to store flower waters in the fridge or they will go rancid.
