For those of you who are unaware, this summer has been dubbed The Summer of the Cocktail. I found the recipe for this drink here.
Makes 8 drinks
16 oz. limoncello (lemon-flavored liqueur)
12 oz. gin
8 oz. fresh lemon juice
24 paper thin lemon slices
16 oz. club soda, chilled
mint sprigs, for garnish
In a pitcher, combine the limoncello, gin, and lemon juice. Cover and refrigerate until well chilled.
Press 3 lemon slices against the inside of each glass and add ice to the glasses.
Stir the limoncello mixture and pour it into each of the glasses. Top each glass with 2 oz. of club soda and garnish with mint.
So, I didn’t manage to get a close up photo of this drink. I was in the process of doing so, but got distracted when someone started talking to me, haha. But anyway, you can see a few glasses on the table in the above picture. It really is a pretty, and tasty, drink. Enjoy with friends on a warm summer evening.
