  • 1/4 cup fresh mint sprigs
  • 1 thinly sliced jalapeño divided
  • 1/4 cup lime juice
  • 6 ounces gin or vodka
  • 12 ounces ginger beer
  • simple syrup to sweet optional


  • In a pitcher, use the back of a wooden spoon to muddle together the mint, half of the jalapeño slices and lime juice.
  • Pour in gin then stir well.
  • Fill four copper mugs with ice and add in equal parts of the gin mixture leaving filling the mugs 3/4 of the way full.
  • Top off each glass with equal parts ginger beer and serve with additional jalapeño slices or lime wedges for garnish.


If you prefer a sweeter cocktail, sweeten to taste with simple syrup which is equal parts sugar and water heated in the microwave for 45 seconds until sugar dissolves.
