Today was another hit-or-miss one - I'm starting to feel like I'm treading over the same ground here. Fortunately I found at least one good combination tonight!
1 1/2 oz lemon juice
1 1/4 oz strawberry-saffron syrup
8-10 mint leaves
Muddle the mint leaves in the syrup; add the lemon juice, shake, and strain over large ice cubes in a tumbler. Top with about 3 oz tonic water to taste (Q Tonic) and stir. Garnish with a mint sprig if you must.
Frankly, I'm glad that this week is just about done. It was a welcome break, but I'm starting to really want a drink, you know?
