Gin Fizz

It doesn’t get much more refreshing than this bubbly mix of gin, citrus and soda.

1 1/2 oz. gin
3/4 oz. fresh lemon juice
1 oz. simple syrup (1:1)
1 to 2 oz. club soda
Tools: shaker, strainer
Glass: highball

Combine all ingredients, except club soda, and shake with ice. Strain into an ice-filled glass and top with soda.
