Gin & Mint Lemonade

Mint-Leaves

A refreshing summer cocktail that works best with Botanivore Gin or Bombay Sapphire (the mint highlights the spices in the gin).

  • 1/4 C boiling water
  • 1/4 C granulated sugar
  • handful of mint leaves
  • 1 oz. gin
  • 2 ice cubes
  • 2 Tbsp fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • Club soda
  • Lemon wedge & mint leaves for garnish

Start off by making a simple syrup with infused mint. Mix the sugar and mint leaves into the boiling water, and stir until the sugar is dissolved. Cool and strain the mint leaves out.

Pour 1 oz of gin into a glass tumbler. Add 1 Tsbp of the mint simple syrup, and the lemon juice. Top with club soda, 2 ice cubes and stir. Finish with a lemon wedge and mint leaves for garnish. You can adjust the mint simple syrup and lemon juice to taste. Makes 1.
