1 Bunch Mint leaves
50 ml Gin
25 ml Fresh lime juice
15 ml Sugar Syrup
Add all ingredients to a cocktail shaker with plenty of ice. Shake. Fine strain into a chilled Martini glass
If you have the time, or inclination, put all the ingredients into the shaker and muddle the mint leaves before shaking.
If you use an Old Tom, reduce the amount of sugar syrup by 5ml to avoid a sweetness overload.
