We don’t normally drink cocktails here at Tipsy Pilgrim, unless you count the carajillo. We’d prefer to drink something of quality, of character, rather than try to hide something evil in fruity sugar-water.

But we realize that some of you are complete pussies. So here’s a typically French summer drink, as mixed at a picnic during Paris Plage, the ersatz beach that Paris erects on the banks of the Seine every August.

It’s called the Jacqueline, and it’s a mix of white wine, grenadine (pomegranate or other fruit syrup), and sparkling lemonade.  Santé !
