Southampton Drink Recipe

This is one of my favourite non-alcoholic drinks that I have a few times a week, but due to its bitter style, it's not to everyone's taste.

To make it how it's supposed to be made is very simple:

  • Take a tall glass and fill with ice.
  • Add a splash of Angostura bitters.
  • Add a splash of lime juice.
  • Fill with tonic water.
  • Top off with a lime slice if you want.
Between the bitters, lime and quinine, this is already a very tart drink.  Even so, I personally take it further in that direction, and usually go a little heavy with the lime and bitters, and I skip the fruit on top.
