Love this refreshing drink in the summer time heat. I must admit I do one thing a bit different. I use 1/2 tonic water and 1/2 seltzer water. I like tonic water, but I like to "cut" the taste just a bit.

I am a lover of bitters, lime, and tonic water- so refreshing! Thanx Sharon, for this easy keeper.
