The idea of being known for a cocktail is pretty cool. I served these at my Stupid Good Tasting Event and people went bonkers. Super fresh, fizzy and clean- you can barely taste the gin, which is dangerous but serves its purpose. This drink is the ideal for the end of summer, even if the weather doesn’t know it yet. Plus, you don’t have to squeeze fresh lemons for this. That is pure nonsense, just get some grocery store lemon juice and call it a night. Check out the video for this cocktail here.
Gin Mint Lemonade
This recipe includes simple syrup, which is essentially equal parts sugar and water, simmered until the sugar dissolves. For awesome flavor, I steep mine with mint leaves overnight in the fridge.
- 1 part simple syrup
- 1 part gin
- 1 part lemon juice
- 1 small handful mint leaves
- Fizzy water of choice
- In your glass, stir together simple syrup, gin and lemon juice.
- Tear up the mint leaves, put them in the glass and muddle with a wooden spoon. Or if you’re fancy, a muddler. I’m clearly not that fancy.
- Add ice. Top with fizzy water of choice! Enjoy! A few…
