All you need is 5 minutes and a few simple ingredients. For this cocktail you will need:

  • Gin (we chose mid-range gin)
  • sugar
  • Fresh lemon juice (freshly squeezed is best here)
  • soda club


Mix in the gin, lemon juice and some sugar. Add ice and fill the top of your glass with sparkling mineral water. Easy!

BTW, if you (or someone you’re doing this for) want to skip the gin, lemon juice, sugar, and soda are pretty tasty.

Advice from Adam and Joanne

  • For a non-alcoholic version, omit the gin and add more soda. Slightly sweetened lemon juice mixed with soda is very refreshing.
