- 2 ounces gin, such as Plymouth
- 1 ounce lime juice
- 3/4 ounce simple syrup
- 1 sprig mint
- 1 fresh mint leaf
Combine the gin, lime juice, simple syrup and mint sprig in a shaker. Add some ice cubes and shake vigorously. Strain into a chilled martini glass.
Garnish with one mint leaf, smacked to release the oils, floating on top of the cocktail.
