Emerald mist

Author Notes: It is a hot humid day here. Looking at what I had on hand I came up with this recipe. It couples the super sweet woodruff sryup of Waldmeister with fresh lime. Fresh ginger adds some zing and lemon grass a subtle tone, too. I had flat tonic water to use, but fresh seltzer would be great.Sagegreen

  • 1 ounce freshly squeezed lime juice
