2 oz Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Honey

6 mint Leaves

0.5 oz Lemon Juice

0.5 oz Sugar Syrup

Crushed Ice

1 Mint Sprig

GENTLEMAN & GINGER

This cocktail is made with sparkling ginger ale and this will go well with any kind of cuisine. We suggest a sushi platter so that the punch of wasabi and soy will be neutralised by the subtleness of Gentleman Jack and cleared by the ginger ale.

INGREDIENTS:

2 oz Gentleman Jack

Top with Ginger beer/ale

1 Squeeze Lime

METHOD:

3/4 fill a highball glass with cubed ice.

Pour Gentleman Jack over ice.

Top with ginger beer or ale.

Add lime wedge to garnish. (IANS)
