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.

Gut mit Luft nach oben

Ich war auf der Suche nach einer Cocktail Datenbank mit der ich mir zuverlässig die Drinks anzeigen lassen kann, für die ich auch die Zutaten im Hause habe. Mit Cocktail Flow klappt das leider nicht verlässlich. Dieses Programm macht das vorbildlich und vor allem listet es die Cocktails auch danach auf, wo mir noch eine, zwei usw. Zutaten fehlt. So kann ich auch immer schauen was ich mir ggf. noch kaufen sollte. Die Auswahl an Getränken ist gut, jedoch mit wenig Sirup-haltigen. Hier würd ich mir mehr Rezepte wünschen wo man die div. Fruchtsirupe einsetzen kann. Auch gibt es leider keine Möglichkeit Cocktails als Favoriten zu kennzeichnen oder das Rezept zu exportieren. Da das Programm nur in Englisch ist muss man in der Zutatenliste manchmal googlen was damit gemeint ist. Mit ein paar Rezepten mehr, Favoritenfunktion und Lokalisierung gibt es fünf Sterne.
Translation: I was looking for a cocktail database with which I can reliably display the drinks for which I also have the ingredients in the house. Unfortunately, this does not work reliably with cocktail flow. This program does the exemplary and above all it lists the cocktails also after, where I still missing one, two etc. ingredients. So I can always look what I should possibly buy. The selection of drinks is good, but with little syrup-containing. Here I would want more recipes where you can use the div. Fruit syrups. Unfortunately, there is no way to mark cocktails as favorites or to export the recipe. Since the program is only in English you have to googling in the list of ingredients sometimes what is meant by that. With a few more recipes, favorites and localization, there are five stars.
