For Christmas last year I gave William a great cocktail/bartender book set. We have experimented with a few of the recipes. We also recently got a little mint bush. So what better way to put our new little “garden” to good use tan to make flavored alcohol. 🙂
Homemade Mint-Infused Gin
4-5 sprigs of fresh mint
(we used enough gin to fill a sealed container)
1. Muddle the mint leaves slightly.
2. Place the muddled mint in a seal able jar. Add the gin and seal tightly.
3. Shake well. Store in a cool, dark place for 10 days. Shake the jar a few times every day.
Cocktail Suggestion: We put a shot of the mint flavored gin in a cocktail glass with ice. Add seven up. Drink.
