The Indy

My wife and I recently ‘invented’ a drink. We call it The Indy.

Named not after my profession but instead after the HMS Indefatigable featured in the Horatio Hornblower series of novels. The recipe is quite simple:

  1. Add 3-5 large ice cubes to a pint glass.
  2. Fill with sparkling water (you can use still water if you prefer).
  3. Add a generous splash of lime juice.
  4. Add a small scoop of stevia (or your preferred sweetener).

A refreshing alternative to typical carbonated beverages that still satisfies my sweet tooth (also helps prevent scurvy on long voyages).
