  • 3Fl oz freshly squeezed Lemon Juice (about 2 lovely lemons)
  • 2fl oz Sugar Syrup (about 50ml)
  • Ice
  • Soda Water

Preparation Method

You will need 2 large glasses

  1. Half Fill each glass with ice
  2. Mix the gin, lemon juice and sugar syrup together
  3. Pour between the 2 glasses
  4. Top up with soda water

You can make your own sugar syrup it;s sooooooo easypeasylemonsqueezy – Just dissolve 50g sugar in 50ml of boiling water and leave to cool. Alternatively you can buy it in the supermarket.

Home made lasts a couple of weeks in a sealed bottle or jar in the fridge!!
