Ginger Summer Sunset

Ginger Green Tea Cocktail


  1. 3 mint leaves, plus a sprig for garnish
  2. 1 small slice of fresh ginger
  3. 1/4 ounce ginger simple syrup [3]
  4. 1 1/2 ounces Cognac
  5. 1 ounce iced ginger-lemon green tea, such as Kusmi [4]
  6. 1/4 ounce freshly squeezed lemon juice, optional


  1. Muddle the mint, ginger, and simple syrup in the bottom of a cocktail shaker. Add the cognac, tea, and lemon juice, if using. Fill the shaker with ice and shake until chilled.
  2. Strain into a chilled glass. Garnish with a sprig of mint, gently massaging the mint leaves between your fingertips to release their oils first.
