Husbanks gave me herb plants for Mother’s Day.
So I have mint to spare. Mint and gin are a good match.
We had fresh limeade with cucumber at a party a couple weeks ago. It was delicious and refreshing. Here’s a fun recipe that incorporates these flavors with gin and mint.
Today’s Recipe: The Eastside
2 oz. gin
1 oz. lime juice
3/4 oz.simple syrup
2 mint sprigs
3 cucumber slices
Notice my scorched mint. It’s HOT! Even for the coolest of cool, spearmint.
Thank you for all your comment participation in gin week!
