A rainy Sunday was made delightful with a new cocktail:
- 5 mint leaves
- 1 ounce lemon juice, freshly squeezed
- 2 ounces gin
- 1 ounce simple syrup
- Garnish: mint sprig
Add the mint leaves and lemon juice into a shaker and gently muddle. Add the gin and simple syrup with ice, and shake until well-chilled. Double-strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with a mint sprig.
