Mint Lemonade Cocktail Recipe (and How-to Video!)

I have been meaning to add a "food and beverage" section to this blog a long time now but hadn't gotten around to it...until now!



Finally took the courage to make a little how-to video as well, which can be kinda weird, the fact of seeing someone and hearing then live after seeing so many lifeless pictures of them..don't u think?


Well, today I wanted to post a recipe of this heavenly cocktail...heavenly because it literally lifts me up and makes me dream with every sip! Don't mock me peeps, once you try it..you will know what I'm talking about!

You will need:

1oz Gin
1 lemon
1 to 2 tbsp of sugar 
3 to 4 mint leaves
Tonic Water
muddler
ice

Cut the lemon in about 7 to 8 wedges.This will make it easier to muddle and extract all of its juice. Put wedges in a glass or container where you can actually muddle it. Put sugar and mint leaves and begin muddling making sure the lemon juice is coming all out. Pour Gin and transfer it to a container where you can shake all the ingredients. If you have a boston shaker like I do use it, if not ANY container that has a lid will do. Shaking the mix will blend everything together, especially the sugar, as well as giving the cocktail a frothy texture...yum!
Transfer everything back to the original glass (or where you are planning to drink the cocktail)top it off with some tonic water.
Smell, taste, dream and ENJOY! Bon appetit!
Salud..2 gitanas everywhere!
