It adds sweetness to the cocktail without altering the flavor.
After adding the liquids, fill the shaker with ice and give it a good shake to combine all the ingredients. The shaking action will also chill the cocktail, making it refreshing to drink. Once shaken, strain the cocktail into a glass filled with fresh ice. Garnish with a sprig of mint and a slice of orange or lemon for a decorative touch.
