Thirsty Thursdays: Prairie Fizz

July 18, 2013

A prairie fizz is as refreshing as it is tasty.  This cocktail, made with citrus juices and gin, is the perfect balance of sweet and tart.  The prairie fizz compliments almost any grilled dish; try it with grilled salmon  and chimichurri sauce.

1 oz lemon juice, freshly squeezed
1 oz lime juice, freshly squeezed
1/2 oz simple syrup
Splash of club soda
