Okay y’all, it’s that time of the month where we get to give away one of our happy hour secrets. This month, I decided to choose a drink that reflects the anticipation of spring, with a bright color and tangy-yet-sweet palette (I even threw in a little greenery!). This cocktail recipe is an adaptation from one I pulled online, but I made some of my own splashes and dashes to it. Also note that since it asks for vodka, you could easily take that out as a work-friendly beverage. How do you like it?
- 8 oz vodka
- 1L guava juice (sometimes I use mango juice)
- 1L dry ginger ale
- 2 tablespoons lime juice
- Angostura bitters
- 1/4 cup whole mint leaves or lemon rinds
- Mix guava juice and vodka in a large jug.
- Just before serving, add ginger ale, lime juice, bitter, and a pinch of mint. Twisted lemon rinds work well as a garnish too if you don’t have fresh mint.
- Serve very cold.
