When we went to Antigua on our honeymoon, our hotel had a fantastic drink called the Lime Squash. It was so refreshing and limey, which just happens to be one of my favorite flavors. The only issue was that it was non-alcoholic and I was on vacation, so I had them, you know, throw some rum to it.
Fast forward to today, where this remains one of my favorite go-to drinks. Not sure what their recipe is, but this is what I created and use.
The Lime Squash
- 1 oz white rum
- 1 oz lime juice
- 1 oz simple syrup.
- Club Soda
- Maraschino Cherries for garnish
- Combine rum, lime, and simple srup in a martini shaker with ice. Shake vigorously and strain into a high ball glass. Top with club soda and garnish with a maraschino cherry. Serve, sip, sit back, deep breath, relax, enjoy.
