Vodka Water

August 30, 2008 at 1:06 pm 1 comment

My cousin Esther just moved to the Pacific Northwest from the south.  We had dinner last night and she offered to make the drinks.  I’m not a fan of vodka at all.  I hate the “rubbing alcohol” taste, so I was a little weary when she had a half gallon of vodka in tow.  Honestly, this is the most refreshing drink I’ve ever had.  Not even a hint of vodka taste!  Try this out at your next gathering…but be careful…they go down easy.

1 double-old fashioned glass (8oz.)
2 shots vodka
1 lemon wedge
1 lime wedge

Fill the glass with ice. Put in two shots of vodka.  Squeeze the juice of the lemon and lime wedge over the vodka, and top with cold water. Stir to combine. If your lemons and limes are really tart, add 1/4-1/2 tsp of very fine sugar to sweeten slightly. Garnish with a twisted lime peel.
