Just adding a handful of fresh, fragrant mint will elevate your standard store-bought lemonade—or better yet, make your own! This cool summer sipper comes together with little effort. It’s tart, bright, and refreshing, just what you need to get you through these scorching months. NOLET’S Silver Gin adds aromatic, floral and fruit forward notes to the tart lemonade, making for a beautifully balanced cocktail. —Irene Yoo

In a cocktail shaker, use a muddler or wooden spoon to gently mash mint leaves 3 or 4 times to release the juices. Add NOLET’S Silver Gin, lemonade, and ice, then shake until cold (about 20 to 30 seconds).
Strain into a highball glass with fresh ice. Garnish with mint sprig and lemon wheel. Serve.
