From August 14, 2012. We had a LOT of fresh mint growing in the backyard in Savannah, so I used some to make mint simple syrup! I got this recipe off of Tanqueray’s Facebook posts, but it can be found on their website as well.
2 mint sprigs
1/2 ounce simple syrup (I used 1/2 ounce mint syrup instead of fresh mint because I had it already)
1/2 ounce lime juice
1 1/4 oz Tanqeray No. 10 Gin (I used Bombay Sapphire – it was fine )
Smash a mint sprig, the lime juice, and the syrup in a shaker and mix with gin. Pour into a highball glass of crushed ice, top with club soda, and add a sprig of mint for garnish.
Very refreshing! Cheers.
