Recipe Notes

My drink was more tart than I would have liked, so I might use less lemon juice going forward. Your discretion is advised.
I didn't have any seltzer water, but that shouldn't stop you from adding a splash if you'd like
I also didn't have a garnish, but I'm not fancy (especially at home)
