Drink Type: Cocktail
This is the latest cocktail creation by NYC Insieme Restaurant's bartender Marshall Altier. His most recent creation appropriately named the Midtown Mule is an ideal and refreshing way to end a hot summer day or transition to warm fall evenings. Altier plays on two very popular trends present in the cocktail world - the resurgence of gin-based cocktails as well as the use of vegetables in drinks. The all star combination makes the Midtown Mule an excellent addition to the thriving cocktail culture in New York City.
Place cucumber slices and cardamon syrup in a tin and muddle to paste. Pour in remaining ingredients and shake. Pour over fresh ice in a collins glass and top with ginger beer. Garnish with a wedge of lime and 2 cucumber slices.
To produce Cardamom Syrup:
Steep 2 Tbsp. of black Cardamom pods in hot water. Combine the pods with equal parts sugar and water and steep until consistent. Cool mixture and bottle for later use.
