This drink is typically served in a highball glass, which allows plenty of room for ice and the garnish of a lemon peel spiral, offering an aromatic hint with every sip. The sharpness of the gin is mellowed by the sweetness of the ginger beer, creating a well-balanced beverage, while the addition of mint provides a cool, herbal undertone that plays well with the lively citrus notes. The Great Lusby seems poised to deliver a potently refreshing experience, perfect for sipping on a warm day or as an invigorating aperitif.
