Occasionally, you just need a good stiff drink after a long day, or while relaxing on the grass. We’re headed into that time of year when having a few friends over to chill out in the backyard is a great way to spend an afternoon, so why not add to your cocktail repertoire.
10mL simple syrup
15mL lime juice
Shake the simple syrup, lime juice, and mint leaves with the ice cubes, not too hard or you’ll damage the mint. Add the gin and mixture to a tall glass and top with ginger beer. Add a slice of lime and a straw to the glass if you like.
