Deep Southside (Gin Mojito)

A little tired of the ol’ G&T and looking for something a little more wickedly tropical – a gin-based mojito, with mint, sugar syrup and crushed lime for gin-with-a-difference


50ml Cape Dry gin

½ fresh lime, diced

6-8 fresh mint leaves

25ml simple sugar syrup

100ml Soda

To make

Muddle the lime pieces, sugar syrup and the mint leaves in a shaker.  Add gin and ice, and shake.

Pour into tall glass, including mint and lime pieces, and top up with soda

Garnish with a slapped mint leaf and a wheel of fresh lime.
