Refreshing warm weather cocktails is all about the olde fashioned Gin and Tonic.

2 ounces Gin
3 ounces Tonic Water

Pour the gin and the tonic water into a lowball glass almost filled with ice cubes. Stir well. Garnish with a lime wedge.


It is imperative to use the original Beefeater Dry Gin for this drink. Enjoy!!!

That does sound good. I've never heard of the La Limonata. This is also the first time I've ever heard of a summer cocktail with Absinthe in it. I will definitely have to give THAT one a try.
