Here's my version of this out back, sit-by-some-grilling meat, refreshing crowd pleaser. At only 150 calories, it also fits in with our goal of drinks that won't go straight to your gut...but still are full-service cocktails!
INGREDIENTS (one drink)
1.5 oz. bourbon (whisky or scotch can also be used)
Juice of 2 lemons
Juice of 1 lime
1 oz. simple syrup (2 tbls. of sugar can be substituted)
1-2 oz. water
To do it right, you should have a majon jar. If not, use a cocktail shaker. Fill your jar or shaker about half full of ice. Put all ingredients in and shake...put just enough water in to make sure you have a full glass. Strain into a tumbler completely filled with ice. Garnish with a wedge of lemon, lime, or orange.
