Ginger Mint Spiked Lemonade
- 12 ounces vodka (Substitute lemon or citrus vodka if you like)
- 9 ounces lemonade such as Simply Lemonade
- 1 sliced lemon (rings not wedges- see above photo)
- 2 ounces ginger syrup
- 20 leaves fresh mint
- 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!
