Based on a recipe from The Ultimate Book of Cocktails by Stuart Walton. He says, “The combination of sourness and fizziness in this 19th-centurey recipe is what makes it so refreshing.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 3 tablespoons gin (2 measures)
  • 12 large lemon, juiced
  • 1 teaspoon superfine sugar (5 ml)
  • soda water


  1. Add gin, lemon juice and sugar to ice-filled cocktail shaker. Shake until the sugar is dissolved.
  2. Prepare a tall frosted, narrow glass by filling with ice half-way.
  3. Pour sifted cocktail shaker contents into prepared glass and top up with soda. Ideally, there should be less soda than the other combined ingredients; however, it is a matter of personal taste.
  4. Cheers!

I love this! I may try some mint so that it's a little mojito-esque. Made for PAC Fall 2012
