Lime Sauce and Andy Murrays

I mentioned on Sunday that we made a pitcher of ‘Andy Murrays’ to enjoy during the Wimbledon Men’s Final. So, I figured I would share the secret with you all, only if you promise not to tell anyone else. It’s just between us friends… right? We start by making a simple lime sauce before hand.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 1/2 cup water
  • 6 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • ¼  cup fresh squeezed lime juice (pulp is ok here)

In a saucepan, bring water, sugar, and cornstarch to a boil. Boil this for about a minute to get everything all dissolved. Now add the lime juice. Bring to a boil and cook for another 1 or 2 minutes. Remove this from the heat and store in the fridge.

Use the lime sauce for the Andy Murray

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 1 cup gin
  • 2 cups of tonic
  • ¼  cup lime sauce
  • A pitcher

In a nice glass pitcher, combine the ingredients and give it a gentle stir.  I like to serve these in a lowball glass without ice. This yields a service of four.

And here’s what you’ll feel like when you’re drinking it!
