I love the name of this cocktail and I love gin and citrus so couldn’t wait to try this one. This drink is mainly gin, with a bit of Cointreau and some lemon and lime juice. I also added some clementine juice for a bit of extra flavor. I used my Tinkerman’s citrus gin for this which was a perfect compliment to the citrus flavors.
I think I’ve mentioned before that we used the have a cocktail club subscription and they used these true lime and true lemon packets and I sometimes use these in cocktails if I don’t have the citrus or I’m feeling lazy. I also use these packets just in my water or in marinades. They add great citrus flavor with no added sugar.
