Cocktail Wednesday - Gin Gin Mule

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.


The ingredients:

  • lime juice (I went for fresh squeezed)
  • simple syrup
  • gin
  • min
  • 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.
