The first warm days of the season deserve a classic cocktail as their accompaniment. Fresh lemon, orange slices and a splash of cherry juice make this beverage as colorful as it is refreshing.

Ingredients

Simple Syrup

¼ cup sugar
¼ cup water

Cocktail

1
cup gin
1
cup fresh lemon juice
Ice
1
cup club soda
4
orange slices
8
maraschino cherries

Directions

  • 1 In small saucepan, heat sugar and water over medium-high heat, stirring frequently, until mixture simmers and sugar dissolves, about 1 minute. Remove from heat; cool.
  • 2 In small pitcher, stir together simple syrup, gin, and lemon juice. Fill 4 glasses to brim with ice. In each glass, pour about 2/3 cup gin mixture; top with 1/4 cup club soda. Garnish each with orange slice and 2 cherries.
Tips  

For a crowd, double or triple ingredients. In large pitcher, stir together simple syrup, gin and lemon juice; refrigerate until ready to serve. When ready to serve, add club soda and garnishes.

For an extra dash of color and sweetness, add a splash of syrup from maraschino cherry jar to each glass.
