Usually considered a summer drink, this refreshing lime concoction is a tart surprise when the chill of winter weather settles in.
  • 3 oz (6 tablespoons) gin
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 6 to 8 oz chilled club soda or seltzer
  • Garnish:

    lime wedges
  • Fill a cocktail shaker halfway with cracked ice, then add gin and lime juice. Shake 5 seconds, then strain into 2 tall (8- to 10-ounce) glasses filled with ice cubes. Top off drinks with club soda, then squeeze a lime wedge over each and drop into glass.
