Do cowboys go for mint and lemon in their gin? Maybe not, but this drink from James Stuart of The Trilby is deliciously fresh and puckeringly tart.


  • 7 mint leaves
  • Ice
  • 2 ounces Bombay Dry Gin
  • 1/2 ounce freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/2 ounce simple syrup
  • Garnish: mint leaf


  1. 1.
