Oooo, yeah, I DO have a lush pot of mint!
I like the sound of the drink "Southside", but want to change the gin to vodka. I'll call it the "Northside"!
Have to drink a mint of them, to get rid of my whole plant! (how's that for a horrible pun, BT?)
2 sprigs of fresh mint
2 lime wedges
3/4 ounce fresh lime juice
1 ounce simple syrup
2 ounces vodka
4 ounces soda water
Muddle 1 mint sprig with the limes, lime juice, and simple syrup in the bottom
of a pint glass/bar glass.
Add vodka and shake well.
Pour into a highball over crushed ice and stir until glass frosts.
Top with soda water and garnish with sprig of mint.
