A refreshing drink that was lovely for a warm sunny afternoon. Made as written. It would be so easy to have a few of these and not realise how much alcohol you have had. Photo also to be posted. Made for the March Recipe Swap in the Aus/NZ Forum

Boy this is a great drink! So light and fresh, great for summertime. I used diet ginger ale and a little splenda instead of the simple syrup. Loved this - thanks for sharing the recipe!
