Author Notes: This is inspired by a cocktail I had at Gigis' Trattoria in Rhinebeck, NY. It's deliciously refreshing - awesome for drinking outside! - apartmentcookererinmcdowell

Food52 Review: Mint, lime juice, gin and bubbles. There is little more that I want in a grown-up summer cocktail. The mint complements the herbal qualities in the gin and the Prosecco lightens the drink, making it go down really easily. - EmilyA&M

Serves 1

  • Juice of one lime
  • 4 to 6 mint leaves
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 shot gin
  • Prosecco
  1. Muddle the lime, mint, and sugar together. Transfer to a cocktail shaker with ice and the gin. Shake until chilled.
  2. Pour into a chilled glass and finish with prosecco.

Can you share where the glass in the photography can be found? I'm searching for some coupe glasses.

I made this for a full bottle of prosecco. I used 6x the amount of mint/sugar/lime/gin. It turned our pretty well, but I would probably cut down on the sugar a bit.
