The perfect summer cocktail. Light and refreshing!
- 2 oz Gin
- 1 oz fresh squeezed lemon juice
- 1 oz simple syrup
- 4-6 oz seltzer
- orange slice and marischino cherry for garnish
In a cocktail shaker filled with ice, mix 2 ounces of gin, 1 ounce of simple syrup (which is equivalent to about 4 teaspoonfuls of sugar) and 1 ounce of fresh squeezed lemon juice.
Shake well to blend and really chill the ingredients.
Strain into a Collins glass filled with ice ( we used 14 ounce tall plastic glasses for the barbecue).
Fill the glass the rest of the way with seltzer, stir and garnish with a slice of orange and a cherry.
