Lemon, Lime and Bitters

READY IN: 2mins
Recipe by Chickee

Supposedly the traditional drink at the 19th Hole in Australia, I think you're more likely to find this drink at a pub. Summery and simple, yet elegant and "special" enough for a special occasion.

After much searching I found a non-alcoholic bitter. So we finally made this recipe for the whole family. We thoroughly enjoyed this drink and will make this often. Will also make it for guest who don't drink. Thanks for the recipe Chickee and for the advice long ago about bitters.
