Mike’s Mix: Mill City Bootleg Cocktail

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Every Saturday, Mike Augustyniak features a local mixologist to get a new recipe you can use to impress your craft cocktail-enthusiast friends. This week, he went to the historic Mill City Museum Train Shed to sample a cocktail that features a once-outlawed spirit.

Mill City Bootleg
1 ½ oz Mamma’s Moonshine
¾ oz lemon juice
¾ oz mint simple syrup *
* To make mint simple syrup: Blanch a large bunch of mint leaves in boiling water for 30 seconds. Add to a fresh batch of 1:1 simple syrup (made from 1 cup of white, granulated sugar dissolved in 1 cup of boiling water) and pulse in a blender until mint is incorporated. Strain through a cheesecloth to remove bits of mint, if desired.
