The most refreshing drink to have this weekend
Mint or regular cocktail syrup
A cocktail muddler
Now please note I am not super big on exact measurements, I usually go by eye-balling it for how much of flavor or strength I like in recipes. Just do what feels right.
First, wash mint and separate leaves from stem. Put approximately 4-5 large leaves into your glass you will use for the drink. Use cocktail muddler and grind into mint leaves in a rotating motion (approximately 10-15 times) until leaves look slightly mashed.
