Verjus Caipirinha Highball

Serves one. Double for two.


  • ½ tsp sugar
  • 8 mint leaves
  • thin slice of ginger (about as round as a nickel)
  • 2 oz Venturi-Schulze Verjus
  • ice
  • 1½ oz rum
  • ginger ale or ginger beer
  • 5 additional mint leaves

Mix first three ingredients and mash with the back of a spoon. Add the verjus and stir until the sugar is dissolved. Fill a highball glass with ice, strain the mixture into the glass, add the rum and stir. Fill the glass with ginger ale and stir in the 5 whole mint leaves. Viva!
