Iced Fire Ginger Mint Cocktail

One of my all time favourite cocktails!

Wednesday, April 7, 2010

Makes enough syrup for 8 cocktails:

200g caster sugar

200ml water

100g of peeled fresh ginger, finely chopped

20g fresh mint leaves

 

Pot

10 mins + chill time
Serves 8

This is a fantastic little fiery cocktail perfect for outdoor slurping in the summer! Feel free to play around with the balance of flavours here, adding more ginger if you prefer a numbing heat, or more mint if you require a cooler menthol taste!

 

Dissolve the caster sugar and water together in a pot over a low heat. Add the chopped ginger and bring slowly to the boil. Simmer for 5 minutes.
Remove from heat, stir through the fresh mint and allow to cool.
Set aside to steep for at least 2 hours. Strain off the ginger mint syrup and keep in the fridge until ready to serve.
Serve over crushed ice with a sliver of stem ginger, 1 part whiskey and 2 parts ginger mint syrup.
10 mins + chill time
Serves 8
