It has been so friggin’ hot here in LA that a sparkly, bubbly citrus cocktail sounds delicious – as early as lunch. Gin is a great hot weather liquor as it goes with citrus so well. This is easy & uses ingredients that are not exotic & goes down like candy. I used a lemon sugar rim intended for Lemon Drop cocktails but it worked very well.
Lime Gin Fizz
1/2 ounce fresh lime juice
1/2 ounce simple syrup (I used bottled but recipes for it are HERE)
2 ounces gin
2 ounces seltzer water or club soda
Some sort of sugar for the rim (optional)
Lime wedges for garnish
Wet the glass & dip the rim in sugar. Shake the lime juice, simple syrup & gin with ice for a good 30 seconds to a minute or more. Fill the glass with ice & pour the chilled gin mix on top. Add the seltzer & garnish with lime wedge.
Chug it & make another!
