The inspiration for this cocktail comes from summers in France, where our restaurant manager Joseph Pocceschi grew up. He personally makes this delicious cocktail at the bar for our customers - and it’s highly recommended.
25ml Green Tea Syrup
15ml Lime juice
8 Mint leaf
1. Make a strong cup of green tea. After 5 or 6 minutes remove tealeaves or teabag and then add equal volume of white sugar and stir to dissolve (bring to boil in a saucepan if liquid doesn’t become clear). Leave to cool (this should keep in a bottle for up to a month)
2. Chill a martini glass.
3. Muddle some cucumber, mint leaf, and lime juice in a cocktail shaker.
4. Pour all ingredients into the shaker together with a handful of ice. Shake well to combine, and then double strain the liquid into a glass.
5. Garnish with the cucumber slices and a fresh mint leaf.
