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 cocktail

INGREDIENTS

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

DIRECTIONS

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!
