This refreshing late-1800s cocktail from Old New York is a perfect summer sipper for a group.

  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 8 ounces dry gin
  • 8 ounces freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • Soda water
  • 4 lemon slices

Instructions:

Put sugar and water in a small saucepan over high heat and stir until sugar dissolves to make a syrup. Remove from heat.
