Today’s recipe is from my dad. I was on the phone with him today and he shared a simple and delicious cocktail recipe with me – Bobby, Griff and I stopped at BevMo before dinner and picked up the necessary ingredients.
I’m not a big drinker, but this cocktail was great. The ginger beer gives it a real punch of flavor and the raspberry vodka mingled well with the lime and mint leaves. Ginger beer is not alcoholic – it’s a soda found in most liquor stores. We used the Stewart’s brand. Ginger beer is quite savory and definitely adds a spicy zest to the drink.
Ingredients (for 1 drink)
2 parts ginger beer
1 part vodka (we used raspberry flavored vodka)
juice from 1/2 lime
4-5 mint leaves
Mix the ginger beer, vodka, and lime juice. Drop the juiced lime half into the drink as well. Slice 2-3 mint leaves and mix into the drink. Garnish with another few mint leaves. Enjoy!
