A cool & refreshing classic with a hint of mint.
- 50 ml 6 O'clock Gin
- 25 ml Lemon Juice
- 15 ml Simple Syrup (1:1)
- 1 handful Fresh mint leaves
Add all the ingredients into a Boston shaker (2 piece), fill with ice and shake well. Double strain into a chilled coupette glass. Garnish with a sprig of mint.
Dates From: Thought to be 1920’s Chicago – though like many great cocktails, its history is somewhat mysterious.
Key Flavours: Cool & refreshing with a delicate mint taste. Perfect for summertime sipping.
Alternative Serves: This is such a simple and delicious drink that it’s surprising that it’s not better known! If it’s a little too ‘punchy’ for you when served ‘straight up’, then you’ll find it also works well as a ‘Collins’ style drink by adding ice and soda in a long glass.
