Simple drinks are my jam. Vodka and Soda Water. Rum and Diet Coke. Sparkling Ice and Vodka. Served over ice and you have a simple, delicious cocktail. This spring break we went to Sanibel Island for a week of relaxation. One of the first things we do when we rent a VRBO or Airbnb for vacation is to hit the grocery store and liquor store. Since we were vacationing alone, I knew a gin bucket a day was going to be overkill, but I want a light and refreshing drink to sip on all week. Insert Fresca and Gin for the win all week long. Fresca and gin is a sparkling lemon-lime cocktail that is a close cousin to the gin bucket punch with the simple combining of Fresca soda with Rangpur Gin.
Fresca and Gin Cocktail
If you are looking for the perfect beach drink, look no farther than this Fresca and gin cocktail. It is light and citrusy with just the right amount of tartness with the sweetness. I drank these every single day on the beach and never grew tired of the Fresca and gins.
Fresca is a unique soda. Don’t think you can just substitute sprite or ginger ale. Not every lemon-lime soda is a Fresca. I don’t normally buy Fresca but felt like being daring so grabbed a two-liter bottle. I am telling you it just like drinking a gin bucket with just the Fresca.
With each sunrise would come a big glass of Fresca and Gin, after my half a pot of coffee of course. The sunrises were spectacular on Sanibel Island.
I could live on this beach forever. The smaller crowds and mounds of seashells made the vacation so enjoyable.
The Fresca and Gin can be fancied up with a few slices of lemon or limes. And if you don’t have them, don’t worry, you are still going to have a new favorite gin cocktail to sip on poolside.
Get your Fresca and Rangpur Gin on the grocery list for the next pool or beach day in your future.
