Ingredients

1/4 cup simple syrup, slightly warm but off the heat

1 small bunch fresh mint, stems removed, plus a few sprigs for garnish

1 cup tequila blanco

1/2 cup freshly squeezed lime juice, plus 1 lime sliced into wedges

Directions

  1. Add half the mint leaves to the simple syrup. Set aside to infuse, 10 to 30 minutes.
  2. Add the tequila to a cocktail shaker filled halfway with ice. Add the simple syrup, lime juice and the remaining mint leaves. Cover and shake well.
