A nice and summery cocktail:


  • 3 measures gin
  • 1 teaspoon sugar syrup
  • juice of 1/2 lemon
  • A couple of mint sprigs
  • chopped ice


Place mint and sugar syrup in an old fashioned glass, and stir them around a bit to bruise the mint. Fill the glass with chopped ice, add lemon juice and gin and stir until the glass is a bit frosty, add mint sprigs for decoration.
