Simple Lovely featured the blog Make Grow Gather last week, and I've developed a little crush. I read her post about Meyer lemon simple syrup, and when I saw organic Meyer lemons at the market, I knew what I needed to do. I needed to make a cocktail.
Lemony Lemonade* (makes one drink)
1.5 oz Meyer lemon simple syrup
1.5 oz gin
4 oz tonic water
2 ice cubes
Put all of the ingredients in a glass and give them a stir. If it's warm enough to open the door for some fresh air, do that.
*This drink is named after the first craft blog I ever read. The one that inspired me to get off my butt and start a blog, but which no longer exists. I'll make you one without gin next time you're in Victoria, Zoe!
