Limoncello Collins

For those of you who are unaware, this summer has been dubbed The Summer of the Cocktail.  I found the recipe for this drink here.

Makes 8 drinks

You'll need:

16 oz. limoncello (lemon-flavored liqueur)
12 oz. gin
8 oz. fresh lemon juice
24 paper thin lemon slices
16 oz. club soda, chilled
mint sprigs, for garnish

In a pitcher, combine the limoncello, gin, and lemon juice.  Cover and refrigerate until well chilled.  

Press 3 lemon slices against the inside of each glass and add ice to the glasses.

Stir the limoncello mixture and pour it into each of the glasses.  Top each glass with 2 oz. of club soda and garnish with mint.

Drink up!

So, I didn't manage to get a close up photo of this drink.  I was in the process of doing so, but got distracted when someone started talking to me, haha.  But anyway, you can see a few glasses on the table in the above picture.  It really is a pretty, and tasty, drink.  Enjoy with friends on a warm summer evening.
