The Vodka & Ginger Limeade cocktail is a grown-up twist on the summertime classic, lemonade. The lemons are replaced with fresh-squeezed lime juice (to give you that same delightful pucker), which is then perfectly matched and sweetened with a ginger liqueur. A dash of orange bitters gives it depth, and a pinch of salt rounds out the flavors. Although the vodka stays quietly in the background, it adds balance and sophistication. The club soda finishes the cocktail with a fizzy texture that will make it seem perfectly appropriate to drink on a hot summer day, before 5 o’clock.
