Balm Cocktail Instructions

The Balm Cocktail is a refreshing and aromatic cocktail that is perfect for warm summer evenings or as a welcome drink for guests. This cocktail combines the flavors of mint, lemon, and gin, creating a harmonious balance of sweet and sour.

To make a Balm Cocktail, start by collecting fresh mint leaves and a lemon. Gently muddle the mint leaves in a cocktail shaker to release their flavors. Cut the lemon in half and squeeze the juice from one half into the shaker. Add a generous pour of gin and a drizzle of simple syrup to the shaker as well.

Fill the shaker with ice and shake vigorously for about 30 seconds to chill the mixture. Strain the cocktail into a chilled glass filled with crushed ice. Garnish with a sprig of fresh mint and a lemon twist.

The Balm Cocktail is incredibly versatile and can be made with various substitutions or additions. For a sweeter version, add a splash of elderflower liqueur or swap the simple syrup for honey. If you prefer a less boozy cocktail, reduce the amount of gin and top up the glass with sparkling water.

Enjoy the Balm Cocktail as a pre-dinner drink or sip on it while lounging by the pool. Its refreshing and zesty flavors are sure to impress your taste buds and leave you wanting more. Cheers!

Best served in a Cocktail Glass.
