Shady Porch Cocktail

An original cocktail that calls to mind enjoying a shady porch on a hot summer’s evening.

Shady Porch Cocktail

1 1/2 oz. mint-infused vodka

1/2 oz. fresh lime juice

1/2 oz. mint simple syrup

3 to 4 oz. Ginger Ale

lime slice and mint sprig for garnish

Fill a cocktail glass with ice.  Stir together vodka, lime juice, and simple syrup. Pour over ice. Fill glass with Ginger Ale. Gently stir. Garnish with lime and mint.

(Thank you to Tim S. from NY for being my hand model and drink taster.)

    • Thanks for the note, Bebe. You could leave the vodka out of Shady Porch and have Gingerale with lime juice and mint simple syrup. Or maybe you might like the Minty Lemon Limade which is non-alcoholic. I’ve been enjoying your blog!
