  • ½ozsimple syrup
  • club soda,such as Topo Chico, or sparkling water
  • 1lemon,wheel, or ½ orange wheel, for garnish
  • 1Luxardo cherry,or other cocktail cherry, for garnish

For Simple Syrup:

  • ¼cupsugar,traditional, or honey
  • ¼cupwater

Instructions

Simple Syrup:

  1. Combine the sugar (or honey) and water in a small saucepan. Warm over medium heat, whisking occasionally, just until the sweetener has fully dissolved into the water.

  2. Remove the pot from the heat and set aside to cool.

Cocktail:

  1. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Pour in the gin, lemon juice, and simple syrup. Shake for 20 to 30 seconds until the outside of the shaker is really cold.

To Assemble:

  1. Fill a tall Collins glass with ice. Strain the contents of the shaker into the glass. Fill the rest of the glass with club soda, and give it a gentle stir with a spoon.

  2. Garnish with a lemon wheel or ½ orange wheel, plus a cocktail cherry. Enjoy.

Recipe Notes

Though the cocktail shaker method yields the nicest flavor, you could skip it and mix these drinks in ice-filled glasses. Just stir together the gin, lemon juice, and simple syrup, then add the club soda and gently stir to combine. They’ll taste stronger on the first few sips and mellow as the ice melts.
