|A Ginger and Lime Lemonade :: Gatsby Style|
"Make us a cold drink," cried Daisy. :: The Great Gatsby
It's not likely Daisy was sending off Tom to whip up a round of ginger and lime lemonades, but rather a boozy, fizzy, icy, limey gin rickey. The Great Gatsby movie, dripping in sweat and alcohol, makes even tea totalers crave a cocktail clicking with ice.
"Gatsby took up his drink. 'They certainly look cool', he said with visible tension. We drank in long greedy swallows. "
If it doesn't officially feel like summer to you yet, see The Great Gatsby; read the book; better yet, do both and enjoy a modern-day ginger and lime lemonade on the lawn.
