There’s nothing more refreshing than a crisp gin drink on a hot summer’s day.
Instead of reaching for a drink in a can, try mixing up your own Gin Smash. It’s light, refreshing, and not too sweet – AKA your perfect summer pool-side companion.
- 1/2 tablespoon sugar
- 2 ounces of gin
- club soda
- 1/4 of a lemon or lime
- crushed ice
- 6-8 mint leaves
- Take three or four leaves of fresh mint, and muddle them well in the sugar and lime or lemon juice, until the flavour of the mint is extracted.
- Add gin and give it a stir.
- Fill the glass 2/3 full with crushed ice and top off with club soda
- Garnish with more mint and lime/lemon if desired
This is one of our favourite ways to enjoy gin – what’s yours?!
