Ingredients

  • 10 mint leaves
  • 1/2 inch thick lemon slice
  • 1 teaspoon Lemon Zest Sugar with Cardamon*
  • 2 ounces gin*
  • 1 ounce Lemon Shrub with Cardamon and Mint*
  • Soda water to top or to taste I used Fever-Tree Club Soda

Instructions

  1. Place a handful or two of ice cubes in a tall high ball glass.
  2. In a cocktail shaker, muddle the mint leaves, lemon slice, and sugar until the mint is very aromatic and slightly bruised looking, the sugar is mostly dissolved, and the lemon has been flattened and released its juices.
  3. Add the gin and shrub and top with ice.
  4. Shake well, until the shaker is very cold and is sweating.
  5. Strain into the prepared high ball glass, top with club soda, and garnish. You can garnish with a lemon wedge or slice, mint leaves, and edible flowers if desired.

Neat Version: Double strain into a chilled coupe or rocks glass and garnish

This Mint Gin Fizz will taste different depending on what gin you use. Each distillery adds different botanicals, so the same cocktail made with another gin will result in its own distinctive version.
