• 2 oz gin
  • 1 oz simple syrup
  • 1 oz lemon juice (fresh if possible)
  • 2 dashes angostura bitters
  • 5 leaves mint


  1. Place mint leaves inside a shaker, muddle them gently for about 30 seconds.
  2. Add ice to shaker, the larger the ice cube the better, this is going to create some of that classic daiquiri-like foam.
  3. Add gin, simple syrup, bitters, and lemon juice to the shaker, cover it all up and shake for a few seconds.
  4. Strain contents of the shaker into a coupe glass, garnish with a mint leaf.
