I love sapphire gyn and I LOVE lemons, so this tart drink was perfect. It goes down easy though so beware, just decreased the Cjointreau a tad.

I also used freshly squeezed lime juice and halved the gin. I guess I kind of made it like a Tom Collins because then I added a little seltzer and a tablespoon of sugar. It was yum!

DH likes gin and initially made this drink for himself. He followed all directions as specified (including using Bombay Sapphire), with the exception that he used freshly squeezed lime juice instead of Rose's. He did not care for the drink. He then gave it to me to try. Keep in mind that I don't usually like gin, but I loved this. I found it dangerously smooth and not overly strong (though I know it is). A very wonderful summery spiked lemonade. I told DH he could make this drink for me anytime. Thanks! Made for ZWT6.

Fabulous! I'll have another - and make it a double! This is just perfect and DH and I will definitely be making these often over the summer. Thanks.

This was awesome. I was short on gin, so I used half gin and half lemon-thyme infused vodka, along with fresh lemon juice and rose's lime. It tasted very similar to a lemondrop but a little less sweet. I would definitely make this again! Made for ZWT 8 - British Pub Crawl Challenge.
