Happy 4th of July! Stir up an American Beauty + White House Faves

4 Jul

What a beautiful summer concoction! Here’s the recipe from ClareCooks :

American Beauty

  • 1 oz Fresh Lemon Juice
  • 3 Fresh Raspberry and 3 Fresh Blueberries or Blackberries
  • 4-6 Mint Leaves
  • .75 oz Simple Syrup or Agave Nectar (I used Agave)
  • 2 oz Gin (recommended: Bluecoat)
  • soda water

Directions

  1. Put the lemon juice, mint, and berries into mixing glass and lightly muddle.
  2. Add the simple syrup, gin, and ice. Shake vigorously.
  3. Fine-strain over the rocks into a double old-fashioned glass and top with a splash of soda. Garnish with lemon wheel and one raspberry.

Makes 1 cocktail.
