Prep Time
Cook Time
Total time: 15 minutes
  • For the Mint Simple Syrup
  • 1½ cups fresh mint leaves and stems
  • 1 cup water
  • 1½ cups granulated sugar
  • For the Cocktail
  • 2 to 3 mint leaves, plus extra for garnish
  • Ice
  • 2 ounces NOLET'S Silver Gin
  • 1 ounce freshly squeezed lime juice
  • ¼ ounce mint simple syrup
  1. Make the mint simple syrup: Place the mint stems and leaves in a glass jar. Bring the water to a boil, then add the sugar, reduce the heat and stir until the sugar is completely dissolved. Remove from the heat and pour over the mint to steep. Refrigerate when cool for around 2 hours, then discard the mint. This will keep for several weeks.
  2. Make the cocktail: Add the mint leaves to a shaker and bruise (don't muddle) them gently. Add the ice, gin, lime juice and simple syrup. Shake vigorously and strain into a coupe or other small cocktail glass. Garnish with a mint leaf and serve.
