Over here at #PatriciasPalace our MDW was a rainy and chilly one. No pool time for me to work on my summer tan. So when life gives you lemons (or unfavorable weather), what do you do? Make a fun cocktail, of course!
This cocktail was inspired by the mint I’m growing in my garden. I’m not going to lie… I might have also wanted to make a red drink that coordinated with these super fun August Morgan cocktail napkins. I’ve built quite a collection of her whimsy napkins that put a twist on tradition.
Anyways, back to the cocktails. Here’s what’s in it:
- 4 oz Sanpellegrino Aranciata Rossa
- 1.5 oz Gin
- 6 Strawberries
- 3 Fresh Mint leaves
- 1 tbsp sugar
- Muddle strawberries, mint and sugar in shaker
- Add gin to shaker and shake
- Pour mixture over glass filled with ice
- Top with Sanpellegrino
- Garnish with extra mint
