Cocktail Recipe: Harpic
If you're looking for a bold and refreshing cocktail to enjoy on a hot summer day, look no further than the Harpic. This cocktail is a combination of zesty citrus flavors and a hint of mint, making it the perfect drink to cool down with.
To make a Harpic cocktail, you'll need some simple ingredients that you might already have in your bar. The main components of this cocktail are vodka, lime juice, simple syrup, and fresh mint leaves.
To start, take a shaker and fill it halfway with ice. Add 2 ounces of vodka, 1 ounce of lime juice, and 1/2 ounce of simple syrup into the shaker. Then, add a handful of fresh mint leaves.
Using a muddler or the back of a spoon, gently muddle the mint leaves to release their flavors. Be careful not to over-muddle and end up with a bitter taste.
Next, cover the shaker and shake vigorously for about 15-20 seconds to combine all the ingredients. This will chill the cocktail and further infuse the flavors of the mint leaves.
Finally, strain the mixture into a chilled glass filled with fresh ice. Garnish with a sprig of mint or a lime wheel for an extra touch of freshness.
The Harpic cocktail is best enjoyed immediately while it's still cold and the flavors are at their peak. Sip and savor this refreshing and invigorating cocktail on a hot summer day or anytime you're in need of a pick-me-up.
