Drinks for Two #2: Summer better than others

Summer's here and you're both looking for something cool and refreshing for sitting outside on a nice terrace.

I'll have a:

Gin Fizz

1 1/2 oz. Dry Gin
1 oz. simple syrup
2 oz. lemon juice
Fill club soda

The lady will have a:


1 1/2 oz. White Rum
1 oz. lime juice
2 tbsp. sugar
3 sprigs mint
Fill club soda

The lime juice, mint and sugar get muddled in the glass first and are then topped with the rum and soda.
