Gin-Gin Mule

Gin-Gin Mule cocktail with mint, simple syrup, lime juice, gin, and ginger beer

The Gin-Gin Mule, by “libation goddess” Audrey Saunders, is the love-child of a Mojito and a Moscow Mule, but made with gin. Saunders invented the drink as part of her quest to get people over their phobia of gin, and it totally works – we haven’t yet failed to convert a gin-hater to a gin-zealot within a few sips.

Saunders’ original recipes calls for Tanquery gin, which she says has more “heft” than the Bombay she started with. Truth be told, we haven’t found a gin we don’t like with it, although we’d steer clear of more floral-forward gins like Hendricks, in order to let the juniper and ginger shine through.

Ingredients

Instructions

Muddle the mint with the lime juice and syrup in a shaker. Add the gin and some ice and shake. Strain into an ice-filled tall glass and top with the ginger beer. Garnish with fresh mint leaves and piece of candied ginger if you have it.
