Bombay London Dry Gin

Club Soda

Fresh Mint Leaves


Superfine Sugar

Directions: First make the minted lime-aid by squeezing about 6 to 8 fresh limes over a strainer to yield 1 cup of fresh strained lime juice.  In a tall pitcher, muddle 1/3 cup fresh mint leaves and add 1/3 cup superfine sugar.  Add the strained lime juice to the pitcher along with 8 cups of cold water.  Stir well and refrigerate.  Next, fill a highball glass with ice.  Add Gin (1 shot or to suit your taste), Minted Limeaid with a splash of club soda.  Garnish with lime wedges and fresh mint leaves.

Tip:  This cool summer drink pairs nicely with light appetizers such as a Cucumber Cup with Shrimp & Dill salad!
