I came up with this super easy, super tasty, summery cocktail recipe a few weekends ago at my best friends house (you may remember her from my previous posts/videos). She wanted a cocktail, I wanted a cocktail and it was really warm out so we decided we needed something refreshing but didn’t want to go to the store. Being the resourceful girl that I am, I knew we could put something together with whatever was around the house. Luckily, that included kumquats from the tree in her backyard and fresh mint from her garden. I whipped these up and we sipped it while lounging in her yard, enjoying the sunshine and possibly talking about Game of Thrones (it’s an obsession). I hope you enjoy it too!

Ingredients

  • A handful of Peppermint leaves
  • 2 Kumquats (can sub tangerines, just use less)
  • ½ – 1 tsp Sugar
  • 2 oz Vodka
  • Ice (ideally crushed ice but any ice will do)
  • Sparkling water

Tools
Shaker, muddler, jigger, knife, glass

Let’s do it!

  1. First, slice your kumquats (remember to leave some slices for decoration at the end) and add about 3-5 slices to the shaker
  2. Put a 2-3 fresh mint leaves into the shaker
  3. Add 1/2 tsp of sugar(you can add more but I don’t like overly sweet cocktails so I always start with a tiny bit)
  4. Mash all the ingredients together using the muddler
  5. Add 2 ounces of vodka
  6. Add a few ice cubes and shake
  7. Pour your cocktail into a glass with crushed ice or regular ice
  8. Fill the glass with sparkling water
  9. Garnish cocktail with slices of kumquat and mint leaves

Sip away and enjoy!! Great for sharing with friends or family. 🙂
