It’s the weekend, and it’s time for cocktails! For the past month, we’ve been exploring cocktails that contain fresh fruit and herbs. So far, you’ve learned how to make a “Ten Grand,” a “Raspberry Refresher,” and Campari Cucumber Cocktail. This week, you’ll learn how to mix a “Mint Muse.”
Eight mint leaves and one mint sprig for garnish
Juice from a half lime with peel finely chopped
Four ounces of fresh pineapple chunks
Three ounces of Lucid Absinthe
Sprite or 7UP
In a shaker, muddle mint leaves, lime juice, lime pieces, and pineapple. Add Absinthe and ice and shake briefly. Pour into highball glasses and top with Sprite of 7UP. Garnish with sprig of mint. Serves two.
Sounds pretty refreshing for a hot July day, doesn’t it?
