Gin Gin Mule

Memorial Day weekend was good to Sour Cherry Farm. More reports to come, but in the meantime, I leave you with this, a cocktail created by Audrey Saunders, our (and so many people's) libation goddess.


1 1/2 ounces lime juice
1 ounce simple syrup (1:1 or use superfine sugar)
About a dozen mint sprigs, the tops of two reserved for garnish
3 ounces gin
1 to 2 ounces ginger beer

In a pitcher, muddle the mint with the lime juice and the simple syrup. Add the gin. Strain into a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake well and strain into 2 lowball glasses filled with ice (crushed, if you have it). Top off with ginger beer and garnish with a mint sprig and lime wheel.
Yield: 2 drinks.

Thanks for the Gin Gin Mule recipe which I will definitely try soon. Where do you buy your ginger beer? Katherine and Ron bring me ginger beer from NYC (for our Dark and Stormys), but I have not found it anywhere around Nyack.

I have seen occasionally seen it at the Natural Market, but I buy it at Whole Foods in White Plains. Thing is, for this drink you don't need much. I bought 2 four-packs last fall and I still have 2 bottles left.
