Gin and tonic is the quintessential thirst quencher in our household, especially on those summer evenings when water is too lame as an option. When Mark Gill, aka @TheCocktailGeek, tweeted White Lady, a tart, but refreshing classic cocktail, we made a mental note to make it as soon as a perfect spring day presented itself. If you appreciate the idea of a citrus infused gin (with a frothy delicious, light topping), you will find White Lady a welcomed addition to your repertoire.
Makes: 1 fine refreshing cocktail
