The Greenback Cocktail Recipe

The Greenback is a refreshing cocktail that combines the flavors of mint and lime with the smoothness of rum. This drink is perfect for those hot summer days when you want something light and easy to sip on.

To make the Greenback, you will need fresh mint leaves, lime juice, simple syrup, and rum. Start by muddling a few mint leaves in the bottom of a cocktail shaker. This will release the oils in the mint and help to infuse the drink with its refreshing flavor.

Next, add the lime juice, simple syrup, and rum to the cocktail shaker. Shake well to mix all the ingredients together and chill the drink. You can strain the cocktail into a glass filled with ice, or serve it neat in a martini glass.

The Greenback is a versatile cocktail that can be enjoyed on its own or accompanied by a variety of garnishes. Some popular additions include a sprig of fresh mint, a lime wheel, or even a sugar rim.

So next time you're in need of a cooling and delicious cocktail, give the Greenback a try. Its combination of mint, lime, and rum is sure to satisfy your tastebuds and leave you feeling refreshed.

Best served in a Old-Fashioned Glass.
