With the Olympics well underway, we still wish we could be in London to celebrate the games. Fortunately, Michael Jordan's The Steak Houses (located in New York City, Chicago, and Connecticut) is offering its own take on English-style cocktails. (After all, Michael Jordan was an Olympian, too!) The Victorian Lemonade is from the Golden Age of cocktails, and is a twist on the traditional mint julep. As the Brits might say, cheers!
Crush a few mint leaves in the bottom of an 10-ounce rocks glass, then fill with crushed ice. Add one tablespoon of simple syrup, 1 ounce lemon juice, and one tablespoon of water. Add 2 ounces of Bombay Gin. Stir gently until glass frosts. Garnish with a fresh mint sprig, sip, and enjoy.
