Olympia Instructions

The Olympia cocktail is a classic cocktail that combines the refreshing flavors of citrus and mint. It is the perfect drink to enjoy on a warm summer day or as a refreshing pick-me-up at any time of the year.

To make an Olympia cocktail, you will need a few simple ingredients and a shaker. Start by muddling fresh mint leaves in the bottom of a cocktail shaker to release their aromatic oils. Next, add freshly squeezed lime juice and simple syrup to the shaker. Simple syrup is made by combining equal parts sugar and water and heating until the sugar has dissolved.

Once the mint, lime juice, and simple syrup are in the shaker, add a generous amount of ice and your choice of spirit. Traditionally, the Olympia cocktail is made with rum, but you can also use vodka or tequila if you prefer. Shake the mixture vigorously for about 30 seconds to combine all the flavors and chill the drink.

To serve, strain the cocktail into a chilled glass filled with ice. Garnish with a sprig of fresh mint and a slice of lime. The Olympia cocktail is best enjoyed ice cold and can be served straight up or on the rocks, depending on your preference.

Whether you are hosting a summer party or simply want to enjoy a refreshing drink, the Olympia cocktail is a crowd-pleasing choice. Its bright citrus flavors and refreshing mint make it a drink that is sure to please any palate.

Best served in a Cocktail Glass.
