Mint and lime are a match made in heaven, especially when plunged into gin. Cool your taste buds and body temperature at the same time.
|8 ounces Farmer's Organic gin||Lime-flavored seltzer|
|1 ounce mint-infused simple syrup (see recipe below)||Cucumber slices for garnish|
|1 ounce freshly-squeezed lime juice||Mint sprigs for garnish|
For Mint-infused simple syrup: Combine 1 cup water with 1 cup sugar in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil. Stir constantly until the sugar is dissolved and the liquid is clear, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and add the mint leaves. Let steep for 20 minutes. Strain mint leaves and let cool completely. The syrup will keep, refrigerated in an airtight container, for up to one week.
(For Thyme-infused simple syrup: Replace mint leaves with thyme leaves.)
(For Pineapple-mint simple syrup: Replace mint leaves with pineapple mint leaves.)
