This week's drink was a Gin Gin Mule. This was a little more labor intensive than last week's root beer float, but not too bad.
- lime juice (I went for fresh squeezed)
- simple syrup
- ginger beer (we used the alcoholic version - though the one in the picture is actually non-alcoholic)
I had to juice the limes but I already had the simple syrup made, which made things a little easier.
Basically, you muddle the lime juice, simple syrup, and mint leaves. After that add ice and gin and shake away.
This mixture gets strained into a glass with ice and the ginger beer is added on top.
It was quite refreshing. Tasted a little like alcoholic ginger ale .. I will definitely have this one again.
We don't have the next drink picked out yet, but I'll update here as soon as we do.
