COCKTAIL RECIPE: GIN MULE

A relative of the Moscow Mule, this is our delicious take on the modern classic that is the Gin Mule. Juicy and super refreshing!

YOU'LL NEED:


  • Strange Nature Gin

  • Sugar Syrup (recipe below)

  • Lime Juice

  • Manuka Honey

  • Mint Leaves

  • Ginger Beer

  • Fresh ginger to garnish

  • Cocktail shaker

  • Ice

  • Rocks or old fashioned glasses to serve



COCKTAIL RECIPE



In a cocktail shaker, muddle 6 to 8 mint leaves, 15ml sugar syrup, 15ml lime juice, and 7.5ml (approximately 1.5 tsp) of honey. Add 60ml of Strange Nature Gin, fill the shaker with ice and shake until well chilled. Strain into a glass over fresh ice. Top up with ginger beer; garnish with a sprig of mint and some fresh ginger shavings to serve.



HOW TO MAKE SUGAR SYRUP


Sugar syrup (or simple syrup) can easily be made at home, or grab a bottle like this one by Shott - we like it because it's made in New Zealand.


For homemade syrup, put equal parts sugar and water into a pot - you can start with 1 cup of each so you have some leftover syrup for your next batch. Stir until the sugar dissolves, then bring to the boil. Once boiled the syrup can be cooled and stored in an airtight container for up to two weeks in the fridge.
