This is the cocktail for those days when no amount of air conditioning, fans, or removing every layer of clothing can cool you down. The combo of classic mint and ginger in this single-serving cocktail makes for an ultra-refreshing party for one, complete with dessert inside—any popsicle flavor you like. (Go for minis so your glass doesn't overflow!) If you don't drink alcohol, this would work really well with lemonade, iced tea, or a new twist on an Arnold Palmer.
1 ½ tablespoons sugar
1 ½ tablespoons water
1 (1-inch) piece ginger, peeled and cut into matchsticks
3 sprigs mint, plus more for garnish
1 large lime, cut into wedges
2 ounces white rum
½ cup ice
1 popsicle (try lime, watermelon, mango, or pineapple)
A refreshing drink, just in time for summer.
Margarita, who? This mezcal pineapple cocktail is so easy-drinking and refreshing.
A sweet & spicy twist on a classic to ring in the weekend (or the end a looong work day)!
