Summer Drink Recipe: The Cordelia

To make The Cordelia, in a large iced tea glass add:
  • 3 ice cubes
  • 1 slice of lime. When you put it in, press it firmly against the edge of the glass with a spoon to release some of the juice.
  • 2 oz. Santa Cruz Organic Lemonade (or something similar)
  • a dash of bitters
  • 0.5 oz dark rum (I like Cruzan Diamond. Omit this if you want a completely non-alcoholic drink)
  • fill the rest of the glass with sparkling water, and stir
  • float 2 or 3 jasmine blossoms or rose petals on top, if available (they are edible)
This is a very refreshing drink. Original recipe by Iron Monkey.
