  • 1 1/2 cups ice
  • 1 1/2 cups Mint-Flavored Vodka (recipe follows)
  • 1/2 cups Ginger Simple Syrup (recipe follows)
  • 2 cups sparkling water
  • For the Garnish:

  • Fresh mint sprigs
  • Lime slices
  • Lemon slices
  • For the Mint Flavored Vodka:

  • 2 large bunches fresh mint
  • 1 750-ml bottle vodka
  • For the Ginger Simple Syrup:

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 3-inch piece of fresh ginger, peeled and
  • chopped


  1. For each cocktail: Fill a cocktail shaker with 1/4 cup of ice. Add 1/4 cup of mint-flavored vodka, 1/4 cup ginger syrup, and 1/3 cup of sparkling water. Shake and pour into a tall glass or flute. Garnish with fresh mint sprigs, lemon slices, and lime slices just before serving.
  2. For the Mint-Flavored Vodka: Place the mint in a 2-quart pitcher. Pour the vodka over the mint and cover with plastic wrap. Allow the mixture to stand for at least 3 days at room temperature. Remove the mint and discard. Makes 3 cups.
  3. For the Ginger Simple Syrup: In a small saucepan, combine the sugar, water, and ginger over medium heat. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat, and simmer for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the sugar has dissolved. Remove the pan from the heat and allow the syrup to cool, about 20 minutes. Strain before using. Makes 1 1/2 cups.
