A fresh and zesty St Patricks Day cocktail•
Posted on March 13 2020
Whether you celebrate St Patricks Day or not, this fresh and zesty cocktail is the perfect excuse to enjoy a drink or two with friends.
This simple lime + mint vodka cocktail already has a pretty green hue but if you want to boost the color for St Patricks Day, you could add a drop or two of food colouring before shaking, or add a teaspoon of matcha tea powder if you prefer a natural option.
Mint and lime St Patricks Day cocktailINGREDIENTS (serves 2)
- 2/3 cup mint leaves
- 1 cup (250ml) lime juice (approximately 6 limes)
- 1 cup (250ml) vodka
- 1/4 cup simple syrup*
- Soda water, to serve
- Food coloring / matcha powder (optional)
To make the simple syrup, place 1 cup of water and 1 cup of sugar in a small saucepan and bring to the boil. As the water approaches boiling point dissolve the sugar by stirring constantly.
Reduce heat and simmer for 10-15 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat and allow to cool completely
Place the mint leaves in a cocktail shaker with the lime juice and lightly bruise using a cocktail muddler or wooden rolling pin. Add vodka and simple syrup (and optional coloring), then fill the shaker with ice. Give it a good shake, then pour into glasses and top up with soda water.
*If you're pressed for time or would rather not bother making simple syrup, you can substitute with agave or maple syrup to taste. If you prefer a tart drink, you can omit the sweetener entirely.
After a couple of these tangy tipples you'll be feeling very festive - to be sure, to be sure!
