2 parts Bombay Sapphire
1 part freshly squeezed lemon juice
drizzle sugar syrup
chilled soda water
fresh mint sprig
Using a Collins/Highball glass build first three ingredients with ice filled to the top. Then top with chilled soda water, stir quickly. Using the palm of your hand slap the mint sprig just to bring out the smell and flavour. Garnish your drink with mint and lemon slice
*Simple syrup is just boiling water and sugar. Once the sugar is fully dissolved, you remove the pan from the heat and allow it to cool. The resultant liquid is easily stored in a plastic squeeze bottle to make it easy to add to cocktails as necessary. The ratio of sugar to water can be left to personal preference, traditionally it is one part water to two parts sugar.
