Holiday time is definitely gathering time, and we always like to put a twist on plain, ordinary cocktails.  Are you ready for this?

PEPPERMINT GIN FIZZ.

Yes, you read that right.  Peppermint.  Gin Fizz.

It’s an easy cocktail to make; it’s different;  and it’s super yummy.

Here’s what you need:

INGREDIENTS:

  • 2 teaspoons Peppermint Tea
  • 1/2 cup just boiled water
  • 3 oz. gin
  • 1 egg white (optional)*
  • 2 tsp. powdered sugar
  • 3 to 5 springs fresh mint
  • Handful of ice
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon, plus 2 to 4 lemon slices for garnish
  • Sparkling water

PREPARATION:

  1. Steep tea bags in the just boiled water until the brew is room temperature, about 15 min.
  2. Pour the strong-brewed tea into a blender. Add gin, egg white (if using), powdered sugar, leaves from 1 sprig of mint, and a handful of ice.
  3. Blend on high for at least one minute; this will help lots of froth develop for the creamy top.
  4. Pour into 2 tall highball glasses or 4 small champagne or martini glasses.
  5. Top each with sparkling water to create the “fizz”.
  6. Garnish each cocktail with a lemon slice and a sprig of mint.

Impress your guests with something new!
