This is our goto cocktail at home. The name is self deprecating. It’s a joke! There is no gatorade in it. I believe this is technically a variant of a Vodka Rickey, but I didn’t know that when I created this. So we call it a Gatorade spritz. It’s very refreshing on a hot day. Almost a bit too refreshing.
- 2 oz Vodka
- 1 oz lime/lemon juice
- 0.4 oz simple syrup - Use the half oz jigger and just eyeball this
- A splash of lemon/lime lacroix
- Shake in a cocktail shaker with ice and strain into a pint glass with ice.
- Pour in a splash of lacroix.
It should be a lemon-lime mix. So the citrus should contrast with the lacroix. i.e. If you use lime juice, use a lemon lacroix.
Notes: Adjust the simple syrup amount if you want it sweeter or less. I don’t like it sweet, but it needs some sugar to offset the citrus.
