Whenever you muddle mint, or any other herb for that matter, unless otherwise stated make sure that you do it gently and just enough to release its natural oils. Over-muddling can cause the herb to release compounds that will ruin the taste of your cocktail.


  • 1 ounce Bluecoat gin
  • 1 ounce Plymouth gin
  • 1/2 ounce Amaro Mio
  • 1 sprig lemon balm, for muddling
  • 1 lemon balm leaf, plus 1 to garnish


  1. Pre-chill a cocktail glass by placing it into the freezer for 5 minutes.
  2. Pour all of the ingredients, except for the garnish, into a cocktail shaker and gently muddle the lemon balm leaf.
  3. Fill the shaker with ice and then slowly stir the mixture for 35 seconds; strain into the prepared cocktail glass.
  4. Garnish the cocktail with the additional lemon balm leaf, and then serve immediately.
