I love how a fruity drink instantly transports you to a land of sea breezes and warm sand (even if you’re just sitting on your front stoop). And gin is my liquor of choice, so I especially love the Singapore Sling. Invented at a hotel bar in the early 20th century, there are many variations, a lot of which call for fancy ingredients, but my version gets the same amazing mix of sweet, tart and bitter without an extra trip to the liquor store. Just be aware of the golden rule of the Singapore Sling: Must Have Garnish. Pineapple wedges, cherries, citrus—whatever!—stack ‘em high onto a skewer before you serve it, otherwise it just won’t do.
You know what's awesome? When you're super-excited to meet someone and she turns out to be just as smart and sweet and chic as you hoped she'd be. That's Danai Gurira, whom you might know as Michonne on The Walking Dead! Tune into @abcthechew tomorrow to see us have some fun in the kitchen! #twd #thechew #fanboy
