Gin Mojito Cocktail is a simple recipe with few ingredients. It’s refreshing, slightly sweet and floral and perfect for summer!
When I was asked to sample the G’vine gin, I thought, ‘yeah, just another gin.’ Wow, was I wrong. The taste of this gin is superb. And, I know gin. Gin and tonic just happen to be my drink of choice during those marathon tailgating sessions we have. G’vine is a unique, ultra-premium gin from France.
What makes G’vine different?
G’vine marries ancestral grape distillation techniques with cutting edge infusion of the rare grape-vine flower!
The G’vine Floraison (the one on the right with green top) is infused with the vine flower and 9 different botanicals. Floraison has a sweet, floral aroma with hints of cardamom, ginger and has a juniper base. It tastes delicate and sweet. It finishes crisply with a floral note. I heart this one!
G’vine Nouaison has more juniper and nutmeg components than Floraison. It’s warm and woodsy in aroma. It tastes robust, warm and rich and finishes with notes of ripe fruit and citrus.
I made a Gin Mojito Cocktail because after making this Strawberry Gin Mojito recently, it’s one of my favorites. This time I made my mojito with Floraison G’vine… because I heart it.
Gin Mojito Cocktail
Are you asking where the mint is in my drink? Yeah, me too. I didn’t realize I strained it out until after I took pictures…and drank it. Um, I was very excited when it was time to drink!
because I heart this gin.
When making cocktails, I have a couple of techniques that I use.
- If the cocktail contains mint, basil or any herb, I like to tear the leaves to release the flavors.
- I also like to refrigerate all the liquid ingredients. By doing this your drink will be super cold and I love super cold drinks on hot, balmy days!
