Gin-Gin Mule

Posted in Drinks at 4:34 pm by Sheila OConnell

My new favorite drink…

Ingredients (makes 2 servings):

  • 2 oz simple syrup
  • 1.5 oz fresh lime juice
  • 1.5 oz gin
  • 1 oz ginger beer
  • 2 sprigs fresh mint
  • candied ginger

Measure juice, syrup, and mint into a mixing glass. Muddle well to extract mint flavor. Add beer, gin, and ice. Garnish with mint or candied ginger.

To make the simple syrup: Mix equal parts water and sugar in a bottle. Close lid and shake well. Let settle and repeat until sugar is dissolved and syrup clear.
