Another new cocktail for the weekend

I ran into a friend of mine who has been retired for a couple of years.   As he described his many recent travels, he also told me about a new favorite drink.  He could not remember the name, but he said it was delicious.  You only need lemons, vodka, and soda water.  Well, I had all of these things in the pantry and bar.  I was set.

Here is my take on the description he gave me.  Again, we need a name for this concoction.  (For other potent inventions, click here. )

3/4 c.  freshly squeezed lemon juice
3/4 c. Absolut Citron vodka
1 T. agave nectar
3/4 c. club soda
raw sugar and sea salt

Combine lemon juice, vodka, and agave.  Stir to combine.  Add club soda and stir again.

Combine raw sugar and sea salt and place in a saucer.  Rim serving glasses with this mixture.

Rim the serving glasses with a mixture of raw sugar and sea salt.

Add crushed ice to glasses and pour cocktail over ice.  Serve.

Serves 2 (large servings.)

Help name this cocktail, please.

As our patio is adjacent to our herb garden, we have garnished this drink with everything from rosemary sprigs, crushed mint leaves, and even taragon.

This is a light, refreshing (yet potent) summer cocktail.

Again, if you can think of a name for this new creation, please leave a comment.  It would be most appreciated.


Comments put a smile on my face. Please leave one!
