Runner's Reward

Recently, after a long run, I was looking forward to a nice soak in the tub. I figured I should make something to drink, to take with me. I didn't want anything too alcoholic, since I had just finished a long run. I know St. Germain is always refreshing, so I started with that. I had a lime sitting around, which seemed like it would go well in a refreshing cocktail. I was going to use rum, to keep things light, but I thought I wanted it to be a bit more interesting, but not more boozy, so I threw in some spiced rum. To add to the spicy notes, I added hopped grapefruit bitters, and I topped it off with soda water. It ended up being exactly what I wanted — tasty and refreshing, and not at all boozy. It's a great drink for soaking in the tub, or a hot summer day when you've just finished mowing the lawn.
