50ml Hitchin Honey Gin
15ml Honey, Ginger, Fennel syrup
15ml freshly squeezed lime juice
75ml ginger beer
Garnish: Mint, lime wedge
Glass: High Ball or copper mule mug
Muddle a mint sprig and syrup in the base of a shaker, add lime juice and Hitchin Honey Gin, half fill with ice, shake for 20 seconds then stain into a tall Collins glass filled with ice, top with ginger beer and stir.
A muddler is a tool a bit like a pestle is to a mortar, but in this case don’t mash the leaves as it will make the drink bitter. If you don’t have a muddler use the back of a table spoon and lightly squeeze the mint to the side of the shaker to release its essential oils.
