Pineapple, Lime, and Mint Sparkler

For a single drink:

½ cup unsweetened pineapple juice
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
2 tablespoons mint simple syrup
2-3 fresh mint leaves; torn into smaller pieces 1-2 shots vodka; depending on how strong you want the drink to be ice a splash of soda water

Instructions:

  1. Place all of the ingredients, except for the soda water, into a glass and stir together well; you can also shake this in a martini shaker for a very cold drink.
  2. Top it off with a splash of cold soda water and stir until combined.
  3. Decorate with a piece of fresh lime or pineapple.

Homemade Mint Simple Syrup:

1 cup sugar
1 cup water
1/3 cup fresh mint (more can be used if desired)

Instructions For Mint Syrup:

  1. Combine the water and sugar together in a saucepan over medium heat.
  2. Stir until the sugar has dissolved and the water is just starting to boil.
  3. Bring to a simmer over low heat and pour in the mint by tearing it a bit to release the natural oils.
  4. Simmer for about 8-10 minutes stirring frequently.
  5. Allow to cool.
  6. Pour through a strainer to remove the mint pieces.
  7. Store in an airtight container and refrigerate until ready to use. Cheers!
