How did I forget the cocktail?

Somehow I managed to forget to share with you the batch of cocktails (and mocktails) that we sipped on at the baby shower last weekend. And I enjoyed typing out a recipe in the last post, so why not have a cocktail recipe to go with your Mushroom Won Tons?

Ginger Mint Spiked Lemonade

  • 12 ounces vodka (Substitute lemon or citrus vodka if you like)
  • ounces lemonade such as Simply Lemonade 
  • 1 sliced lemon (rings not wedges- see above photo) 
  • ounces ginger syrup 
  • 20 leaves fresh mint
  • Ice
  • 6 ounces Ginger Ale

Add ice to individual glasses.   In a large clear pitcher, muddle mint with ginger syrup.  Add in vodka, lemonade and ginger ale.  Stir well. Pour over ice and serve!

Serves 6 (unless you are thirsty, then it serves 2 haha)  

For the mocktail version, omit alcohol and an additional 6 ounces of lemonade and 6 ounces of ginger ale.  Viola!


I created this cocktail because I wanted to use the new Ginger Syrup by Morris Kitchen that I had just purchased while in New York the previous week.  If you would like to purchase your own, you can find it here or here is a recipe to make it at home using fresh ginger.

Tip: This cocktail (or mocktail) looks beautiful in a clear glass pitcher, so you can see the sliced lemons and the mint swirling around!  Enjoy!
