This cocktail came from the comments of Cassie’s post about a virgin cucumber mojito. In the comments someone mentioned a foghorn and it sounded pretty good. I mentioned the summer classics of G&T, Pimms, and for people not drinking alcohol, rock shandy and anything with bissap in it. The Foghorn though, is right in my flavour profile, gin and lime and ginger, all things I love.
This feels more like a fancy twist on a gin and tonic than an actual cocktail, but like a G&T, you could make it without the gin for the weeknights when you really want a drink but don’t want to actually drink.
2 oz gin (I used Beefeater here)
3/4 oz fresh lime juice
1) Pour gin and lime juice into an ice filled rocks glass.
2) Top up with ginger beer. Garnish with lime wedge.
