Whiskey Striker Cocktail

This whiskey striker cocktail is perfect drink for today’s TGIF where we lift our glassed to toast the return of the summer warmth. The mint in our garden is growing like a weed (which is what it is :-0) so I look to find any way I can to use the stuff. I used an apple mint variety in this, but any most any type of mint will do.

Recipe

1 cup mint leaves
3 oz Canadian whiskey
2 oz vanilla vodka
1 oz lime juice
6 oz apple juice (cloudy is better0
ginger ale soda or ginger beer

Similar to making a Mojito, place crushed ice in a large cocktail shaker, add mint and lime juice. Muddle the mint mixture. Add the whiskey and vodka and apple juice. Shake and strain mixture equally into 2 tall glasses filled with ice. Top the glass off with ginger ale. Add a long stalk of mint for garnish. Enjoy.
