White Linen

I had this drink one night out at Shady Lady in Midtown Sacramento and loved it so much I had to recreate it at home.  It's so light and refreshing that it has since become my go-to summer cocktail.


1 1/2 ounces gin
1 ounce St. Germain Elderflower Liqueur
Juice of 1/2 Lemon
Club Soda

Shake the gin, St. Germain, and lemon juice with ice in a cocktail shaker and strain over an ice ball into a tumbler.  Then fill the glass the rest of the way up with club soda and enjoy poolside.
