Limon-Ginger Press

limonpressThis is a light flavorful drink perfect for summertime. Lemon pairs well with ginger and basil so you can not go wrong with this take on a vodka press.  

A vodka press usually is a mix of club soda or tonic and lemon-lime soda.  

 

Serves 1

1 ½ ounces limoncello liquor
1 ½ ounces ginger vodka
2 ounces club soda or tonic
2 ounces gingerale
fresh lemon, sliced
fresh ginger, peeled and sliced fresh basil

 

Use a paring knife to remove the peel, or outer layer, from the ginger. Also, remove any seeds that are in the lemon slices.

In a martini shaker, muddle together the lemon, ginger, and basil with a splash of soda water. If you do not have a muddling stick, a wooden spoon works great!

Add the limoncello and vodka. Next add a few ice cubes and cover. Then shake, shake, shake.

Strain mixture into a glass, over ice. Add the club soda and gingerale. Garnish with a lemon slice.

Stir and enjoy!

NOTE: To lower the sweetness and calories use only club soda and omit the gingerale.
