I had to go do some digging today after it was decided that May’s theme would be mint cocktails. Apart from the mojito & the mint julep, I wanted to see what else was out there.
One site lists out 63 recipes - the Gin Genie looks great as does the Primo Trace Smash. There are multiple variations on the mojito and julep here. Someone will need to make a grasshopper :)
Slakethirst shows off a concoction from the Savoy Cocktail book simply titled The Mint Cocktail.
Serious Eats has a gorgeous mint-cardamon cocktail. This sounds like it would be sweet but not cloying.
For a dessert-y side, these Lemon Champagne Mint Granita cocktails look beautiful.
Time to do some research before next week!
