Gin Fix

Some of my favourite bar drinks are what I call ‘deck drinks’. These are libations which we can easily mix with no cocktail shakers, no fancy garnishes, and most importantly of all, no fuss! The simplest of deck drinks combine your favourite spirit with a few cubes of ice and a shot of soda. Rum and Coke, Rye and Ginger, and Vodka and Seven are all examples of the deck drink craft. Sometimes, rather than soda, I will use fresh citrus. A Screwdriver (Vodka and Orange Juice) is a good example of a citrus based deck drink.

During my recent Gin Binge, I encountered Prairie Organic Gin, and I was struck by its subdued, relaxed flavour profile. It seemed an ideal spirit for an enjoyable deck drink. A bit of Lime Juice, a touch of Sugar Syrup, a dollop of Gin (and lots of Ice) and I was done. I suppose the proper name for this libation is the Gin Fix, but I just call it Gin and Lime.

(Perhaps it is just a hair more complicated than the average deck drink, but the results are certainly quaffable!)

Gin and Lime (Gin Fix)

2 oz Prairie Organic Gin
1/2 oz Fresh Squeezed Lime Juice
1/4 oz Sugar Syrup

Pour the lime and sugar syrup into a suitable glass
Add Ice
Pour in a dollop of Prairie Organic Gin
Stir and Enjoy Responsibly!
