EFFEN Vodka’s Bold Ginger Cocktail
Vodka happens to be one of my more favorite spirits. With its versatility and smoothness, Vodka’s hard to beat as a base for mixed cocktails. In case you missed it, National Vodka Day was Oct 4th, (not as though we really need a reason to partake) and in honor of the momentous occasion, Effen has put together the Bold Ginger cocktail that’s sure to please. Perfect for winding down busy autumn days, the Bold Ginger is crisp and refreshing with splashes of fresh mint.
1 ½ parts EFFEN® Vodka
¾ parts Lime Juice
¾ parts Ginger Syrup
1 dash Bitters
5 Mint leaves
Preparation: In a mixing glass, muddle mint, lime juice and ginger syrup. Add vodka and shake over ice. Strain and pour into a tall glass with ice and ginger beer. Garnish with mint sprig.
