A VERY refreshing (old-fashioned) adult version of limeade!!! Now, I have only used gin, but I’ll bet you could substitute vodka and it might be just as good. It’s the LIME that really makes this drink yummy.

Amount Measure Ingredients
1/2 cup sugar
1 1/2 cups gin
3/4   fresh lime juice
1 1/2 quarts chilled soda water
    Thin slices of lime

To prepare:

  • In a 1-quart pan, mix sugar with 1/2 cup water and stir over low heat until sugar is dissolved, about 5 minutes. Let cool or chill.
  • In a 3-quart pitcher, combine gin, lime juice, and the cooled syrup. Cover and freeze until ready to serve.
  • To serve, add soda water. Pour into ice-filled glasses and garnish with lime.
