Gin-Gin Mule

Gin-Gin Mule
A modern classic that at first glance looks like the gin version of a Moscow Mule, but actually shares a striking resemblance to the Mojito too.

The Gin-Gin Mule was created at the iconic Pegu Club bar in New York by Audrey Saunders in the year 2000. Designed as a gateway drink from the traditional vodka counterpart, some would say that this cocktail is even better than the original. The name Gin-gin refers to two gins in the drink - gin and ginger. The addition of mint gives a refreshing and herbaceous uplift which ties perfectly to the botanicals in gin. With the punchy flavours going on in this drink you need a bold gin to stand up and take charge, a big London Dry works best to create a drink that you are sure to love.

Bartender’s Top Tips

Give the mint sprig a light slap to release more of the aroma before you garnish the drink.

A lot of people think you need to muddle mint leaves - this is not really necessary as the shaking process is aggressive enough in itself.
