Gin Fizz Cocktail

Happy Thursday Slow Roasters!  Labor Day weekend marks the unofficial end of summer.  However we are still summering here in the valley of the sun (and more sun and more sun).  Warm temperatures whether in May or October call for a cold and refreshing drink.  The Gin Fizz is a classic that deserves your attention.  Like a lemon soda with no kick, these go down really easy!
Don't forget to check us out on Facebook - we have a virtual Ladies Night party every Thursday.  Come and link up your favorite cocktail or dish!  Fabulous cocktails, fantastic food and amazing company.  Its the place to be on Thursdays! 
Cocktail Tip:  If you have never tried Gin, I recommend starting with a citrus based gin like New Amsterdam, it has a flavor that is quite pleasing.  Coming from a non-gin drinker, this was quite a pleasant surprise!

Gin Fizz
2 ounces gin (I used New Amsterdam)
1 ounce simple syrup
1 ounce fresh lemon juice
4 ounces club soda
lemon slice

Combine gin, simple syrup and lemon juice in a cocktail shaker filled with ice.  Shake to combine.  Pour into a cocktail glass.  Pour club soda into glass.  Stir to combine.  Garnish with lemon slice.  Serve and enjoy!
