Adding layers of flavor to this eye candy cocktail, from ginger to mint, on top of a gin backdrop, brings the drink to life. I enjoy it a great deal, and it makes an excellent summer beverage. The recipe was created at Touché Miami, a restaurant that was once located in downtown Miami, and it is definitely a fantastic drink to enjoy with dinner. Bombay Dry Gin is a more traditional London Dry version of Bombay Sapphire and makes up the base of this cocktail. While the drink is great when enhanced with the elderflower flavor of St. Germaine, it does not stop there. It’s also delightful to experience the spicy taste of fresh ginger root against the cooling taste of mint. Even though it has a long ingredient list, it mixes up very quickly.
