Add Some Zing to Your Cola!

Lemon Cola

Sometimes, the simplest approach is the most satisfying.

Or, in this case, the most refreshing.

Put ice in a tall tumbler and add several slices of fresh lemon or lime.  (Alternatively, you can also squeeze fresh dayap or kalamansi juice over the ice cubes.)  Pour in a good measure of your cola of choice et laissez les bon temps rouler!

The tartness of the citrus adds a favorable tang to cut the sweetness of the cola, making this a most refreshing drink on a sweltering afternoon.  😉
