Here is the drink you’ve been waiting for! It was featured on an Oprah show in 2010. Perfect summer drink! Serves 1.
- 1 ounce vodka
- 1 tsp. sugar syrup
- fresh lime juice
- 1/2 cup ginger beer
- 1 sprig fresh mint
- 1 slice of lime
- Pour vodka over ice.
- Add sugar syrup and lime juice (squeezing limes with your teeth, optional…see Oprah Episode).
- Top with ginger beer (ginger ale is not the same) and stir.
- Garnish with mint sprig and lime slice.
*I like to muddle the mint at the beginning to really bring out the mint flavor.
