Ginger and Lime Lemonade

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.
