👋 Hey there, welcome to our new subscribers and our old cocktail hands alike. Another Happy Friday (or potentially Saturday for our more easterly friends). Welcome to another ingredient deep dive and this time into the fresh and zingy .... mint.
Mint, like a lot of other herbs, can be a great addition to many cocktail, not just to the classic ubiquitous Mojito (and the countless fruit riff's), but also to a host of smashes, mules and swizzles alike (yep, all families of cocktails for you to explore). It can add a subtle undertone to freshen up a cocktail, or be the forefront flavour player and be letting you know that it's there to stay for the whole glass.
We've included some classic's in our top 4 cocktails this edition for you, from the Derby to the Mint Julep, so get trimming that mint plant and get shaking up a delicious fresh number this weekend.
We hope you're all safe out there wherever you are, happy weekend and enjoy a cocktail or two!
