Drink of the Week – The Lemon Breeland

On occasion, I like to enjoy a simple, elegant, after-dinner cocktail.  When in Rome, right?
Generally I’ll opt for a classic gin and tonic, but when we were short on tonic the other night I had to get creative.  I varied things up by mixing 1 part of a sweeter gin – a brand called Aviation – with 2 parts club soda, two slices of lemon, and the juice from half a small lemon.  The result was tangy and refreshing and incredibly light.  
I called it the Lemon Breeland after the character on Hart of Dixie, which is a show, I’ll admit, I watch regularly (and sometimes just for the clothes.)  I actually do think it’s a drink Lemon would like herself.
