I Can’t Believe It’s Not Sprite

While having a few friends over recently, I had a sudden realization as I considering the different drink options laid out. In front of me, were all the components to recreating Sprite (or whatever lemon/lime soda you’re brand-loyal to).

What a unique opportunity to escape the overdone college staples of crappy screwdrivers, I built something like this:

  • 1 shot lemon rum
  • 1 shot triple sec
  • 1/2 oz. simple syrup
  • 1/2 tsp. lime juice
  • 3-4 oz. club soda

After searching around the internet for a (brief) bit, I was fairly confident that this is not yet a “thing.” As such, I am now making it official.

The closest thing I found was this guy’s recipe which looks like it sucks.

Let me know what y’all think.
