We’ve been having incredible weather here in San Francisco —highs in the 70s!— and it feels like summer. This drink is delightful and refreshing and certainly fitting for a summer day, or an unseasonably warm winter one.
1 1/2 oz gin
1/2 oz simple syrup
1 oz lime juice (lemon will also do in a pinch)
2 dashes of Peychaud’s Aeromatic Bitters
spring of mint
Combine gin, simple syrup, lime juice and bitters. Stir. Add mint and shake with ice. Strain into a chilled glass and top off with a splash of club soda. Garnish with a few leaves of mint. Enjoy!
