Standing tall on this photo are two Gin Gin Mules. This famous cocktail is composed by Audrey Saunders and it is kind of a mix between a Moscow Mule and a Mojito.
This cocktail certainly is as refreshing as a Mojito, but using gin rather than rum makes this cocktail more dry. On the other hand there is the ginger beer in it to add some sweetness, and a spicy kick at the same time.
Summer is soon approaching Sweden, this is most definitely a cocktail we might sip on again, during those hot days to come.
