Make me something refreshing with citrus.

If you're in the mood for a refreshing citrus cocktail, I highly recommend trying the Lemon Daiquiri. This delightful drink scores the highest rating of 4.63/5 and is perfect for those who enjoy a tangy and sweet beverage. It uniquely combines the tartness of fresh lemon juice with the sweetness of sugar syrup and the robustness of white rum, all elevated by the citrusy hint of Cointreau. The Lemon Daiquiri is traditionally served in a sugar-rimmed cocktail glass, adding an extra touch of elegance and a hint of sweetness with every sip. Garnished with a lemon wedge, this cocktail is a great choice for anyone looking for a spirited, fruit-forward drink.

If you're looking for something non-alcoholic but equally refreshing, the Citrus Fizz is an excellent choice with a rating of 4.4/5. Combining lime juice and orange juice with a dash of Angostura Bitters and topped with tonic water, this cocktail offers a vibrant and fizzy experience perfect for any occasion. Served in a champagne glass, often with a sugared rim, it looks as good as it tastes. The effervescence of the tonic water enhances its texture, making it a delightful, non-alcoholic option for those who love citrus flavors.
