The perfect summer drink. My friends and I are just absolutely having one of these on the porch whenever we get the chance…most recently to celebrate electricity in South Louisiana.

Here’s what you need:
gin
limes
sparkling water
simple syrup
ice

Here’s how you do it:
Fill the glass with ice
Pour in gin to your liking
Add the juice of one lime
Stir in a tablespoon of simple syrup (in a pinch, I just use about a half teaspoon of sugar)
Mix well
Top with sparkling water

Et voila, cher.
