Finding the perfect vodka, lemon, lime and bitters

I was first introduced to the non alcoholic version of this summer drink on a first date in a small café in Melbourne. Tiny, yet intimate, Rue Bebelons is on little Longsdale street and is a gorgeous place …

Now to create this concoction you will need;


  • Zillions of fresh lime and lemons
  • Ice cubes
  • Lime cordial
  • lemonade/soda water
  • Angostura bitter
  • Vodka (optional)


  • Take a chilled tall glass, add ice up to half way
  • Pour the Angostura bitter in between the sides of the glass and the ice, making a full circle
  • Slice thick wedges of lime and lemon
  • Squeeze the juices of both in the glass on top of the ice – (one whole lemon and lime per glass)
  • Add a shot of vodka (optional)
  • Pour a shot of lime cordial in the glass
  • Fill the rest of the glass up with either lemonade or soda water
  • Pop a couple of slices of lemon and lemon in the glass
  • Add a straw. …and sip away
