DIY Finnish Lonkero (a.k.a. Long Drink)
Ingredients5 m servings 145
- Place ice cubes in a cocktail glass. Pour gin over ice cubes; add grapefruit juice, lemon juice, and lime juice. Top with club soda and stir gently.
- Cook's Notes:
- Add more gin as desired. A shot of alcohol in the US. is usually between 2 tablespoons and 1/4 cup.
- You can play with the ingredient amounts but I find it tastes best when you use slightly more club soda than grapefruit juice.
- Substitute club soda for a lemon-lime soda (such as 7Up®, Sprite®, or Sierra Mist®), if desired. The key is to get the bubbles and the different citrus flavor. It's a bit sweeter with Sierra Mist®.
