This is my first food/drink post ever! And I thought it would be fun to do a very simple but incredibly yummy cocktail. I say cocktail lightly as it doesn't actually include any "hard" liquor. My husband lived in Sydney, Australia for two years and I've visited twice as well. They have an amazing drink there (you can also get it here but it's not on any menus) called Lemon Lime Bitters. It includes lemonade, bitters and lime cordial. I am a BIG fan of ginger ale. So this is my adaptation on a Lemon Lime Bitters cocktail or as I call it a Ginger Lime Cocktail.
*The only mention I will make is bitters does have a high alcohol percentage, however this recipe is using it in such small quantity, it wouldn't be considered alcoholic but in case you don't drink alcohol or are pregnant thought you should know ;)
All you need is:
- Ginger Ale (I prefer Canada Dry)
- A few slices of lime
- 1/2 tsp. of lime juice
- 3 - 4 dashes of Angostura Aromatic Bitters
- Fill a cocktail glass half way full of ice
- Add the lime juice
- Fill the glass with ginger ale
- Add the bitters
- Enjoy a cool refreshing drink on your deck in the sun!
