Carthusian Summer

Gin, Soda water, Lemon juice, Simple syrup, Herbal liqueur
Add all ingredients to an iced highball or Collins glass. Give a quick stir and top with the soda.
I created this drink for the opening of the Great Lakes Coffee Bar in Detroit. This is a really refreshing drink on a hot summer day. Named for the Carthusian monks who have been producing Chartreuse since the mid 1700's.
