Begin by adding all of the liquid ingredients to your chosen shaking vessel – either classic one-piece or bartender's two-piece.*
Gather your mint leaves in the palm of your hand and give them a firm slap, this will release the essential oils.
Add the slapped mint leaves to your serving glass – high-ball/wine glass
Fill your cocktail shaker, or toughened shaking glass, with cubed ice – and then fill your serving glass with cubed ice.
Seal your shaking vessel closed – firmly shake for 8-10 seconds.
Pour the mix into your iced-up serving glass – you might want to take a bar spoon and spread the leaves throughout the glass.
Take a sprig of mint – only top few leaves needed – and give it a slap.
Add the sprig to your glass - adjacent to a straw - with the top leaves above the liquid, pointed at the heavens. Enjoy!
«*If using a classic one-piece cocktail shaker – a tin vessel with a lid and cap – then all of your liquid ingredients should be poured into the tin.»
