This drink is one of the most delicious ones I’ve ever made on my own. There’s no inspiration from another recipe with this one. I just had these ingredients lying around and whipped it up. Initially I wanted a mojito because I wanted to use up the going-bad mint leaves I had in the fridge but I had no rum on hand so I decided to improvise and take things up a notch. This made for a very refreshing and yummy cocktail. If you prefer, you can strain it to make it “less dirty”. Personally, I prefer the bits and pieces of everything swimming in my mouth. YUM!
1/4 cup lime juice
1/4 cup bitter lemon soda
simple syrup (to taste – you might need more)
2-3 tablespoons crushed berries ( I used raspberries, blueberries and strawberries)
a few mint leaves, torn
1 jigger of gin *or more*
1. Mix everything except soda in a cocktail shaker.
2. Fill the glass about 1/2 full of ice cubes and top off with bitter lemon soda.
Bye for Now…..
