Gin Mule Cocktail

Gin Mule - a simple cocktail to make at home brought to you by the makers of Slingsby Gin.



Ingredients:

50ml Gin of choice. We recommend the Slingsby London Dry but use the Slingsby Rhubarb to add a fruity twist.
200ml good quality ginger beer (don’t get confused between ale and beer! Beer works best for this drink!)
1 lime cut into ¼
Ice
Optional mint to garnish





You will need…

A glass - ideally not a wine glass or goblet. Use a flat bottomed collins or rocks glass or even better a mule tin/mug!
Something to crush the limes with – ideally a muddler but a rolling pin will work well too. (If you can't find anything don’t worry you can just squeeze and drop the limes into the glass.)
A spoon
Optional shot glass/jigger/measure – but you can just do it by eye.


Method:

Using a muddler crush the limes into the bottom of your glass extracting as much juice as you can.

Add a double measure of Slingsby gin to the lime juice and pulp.

Fill the glass with ice and top with ginger beer.

Give it a little stir and then garnish with a mint sprig.


Enjoy!
