This drink is perfect if you are looking to sip on summer! It’s light, refreshing, and delicious!


For the drink: 

Spindrift and Lemon ice cubes (recipe below)
2 ounces London Dry Gin (I used Tanqueray)
1 ounce fresh lemon juice
1/2 ounce cherry simple syrup (recipe below)
4-6 ounces Spindrift Pink Lemonade, adjust amount to taste
1 lemon wheel, for garnish

For the Spindrift and Lemon Ice Cubes:

1 Spindrift Pink Lemonade
1/2 cup fresh lemon juice

For the cherry simple syrup:

1/2 cup water
1/2 cup sugar (I used castor, but you can use any you’d like)
1/2 cup dark sweet cherries, frozen (fresh works as well)


For the Spindrift and Lemon Ice Cubes:

Fill half of an ice tray with Spindrift Pink Lemonade. Only fill 2/3 of the way because they will expand.

Fill the second half of the tray with the fresh lemon juice. Only fill 2/3 of the way because they will expand.

Allow to freeze for at least 6 hours. 

For the cherry simple syrup:

Combine water and sugar in a saucepan over medium-low heat and stir continuously.

After the sugar has begun to dissolve, about two minutes, add the cherries and stir. 

Allow to simmer while the cherry juice releases into the sugar water mixture, approximately 5 minutes. 

Turn off the heat and strain the simple syrup into a glass to remove the cherries. Allow the syrup to cool. 

For the drink:

In a Collins glass, add Spindrift and Lemon Ice Cubes to the top. Pour the gin, lemon juice, Spindrift Pink Lemonade, and simple syrup into the glass and stir.

Cut a line from the middle of the lemon wheel to the edge. Take the two freshly cut sides of the lemon and twist them in opposite directions to create an S-shape. Thread the lemon with a toothpick to hold the shape, and place it on top of the glass to garnish. Enjoy!
