Lemon-Lime & Bitters

Lindsey and I first learned about this drink while we were living in Australia. It's a keeper.

     Directions:   - Rim the inside of a glass with 5-6 dashes of Angostura aromatic bitters.  - Add ice and swirl until the glass is evenly coated with Angostura aromatic bitters.  - Fill glass with lemonade or Sprite and a shot (15 ml) of lime cordial or fresh lime juice. ( For a low-cal version fill         glass with soda or use diet drinks).  - Garnish with a slice of lemon or lime.
