  • 1 Lime Cut Into Wedges
  • 3 Tablespoons Sugar
  • 1 1/2 Ounce Fresh Lime Juice
  • 8 Ounce Soda Water


  • In a cocktail shaker, muddle all the lime wedges with sugar, until the lime wedges release their juices, and sugar and lime juice become syrupy.
  • Fill the cocktail shaker with ice, add lime juice, and shake vigorously.
  • Strain into an ice-filled highball glass, top with soda water, and stir. Garnish with a lime wedge or a lime twist.
