Ginger Green Tea Cocktail

Ingredients

3 mint leaves, plus a sprig for garnish
1 small slice of fresh ginger
1/4 ounce ginger simple syrup [3]
1 1/2 ounces Cognac
1 ounce iced ginger-lemon green tea, such as Kusmi [4]
1/4 ounce freshly squeezed lemon juice, optional

Directions

  1. Muddle the mint, ginger, and simple syrup in the bottom of a cocktail shaker. Add the cognac, tea, and lemon juice, if using. Fill the shaker with ice and shake until chilled.
