It’s St. Patrick’s Day. I celebrated once in first year, two weeks after I had turned 19. It was my first real experience in a packed, hot, sweaty bar with lots of irresponsible drunken people. The campus pub was chaotic, crazy, dark, crowded. I cherish some of those memories, but St. Patty’s day has never been for me. I don’t drink beer much and green beer seems especially unappealing.
However, this is a faintly green drink that is completely delicious. Actually, it’s more yellow than green, but that’s just a technicality. I started drinking this is in university too as I was trying new drinks and expanding my alcohol repertoire.
Over ice, pour
1 oz lemon juice
1 oz gin
1 tbsp sugar
Stir it all well together. Top up with club soda and mix gently.
Try not to drink too many.
