Gotta Drink 'Em All! Cocktails Based On The Starters From Pokemon Red/Blue

#002: Ivysaur

The preparation for this drink is very similar to the Bulbasaur, just with a few added steps. The evolved form of the Bulbasaur drink adds more leafy goodness with muddled mint and sugar, and the fizziness of the soda water we'll add will bring out the flavors of this budding Pokemon even more.

The first thing you'll want to do is grab a handful of fresh mint leaves and throw them into your glass with some fine sugar. Muddle the mint, letting the grains of the sugar crush the leaves until they have a paste-like consistency. Don't skimp on this, it really is key to bring out the flavors here.

The rest of the drink is exactly the same as the Bulbasaur, only after you pour it, you'll want to cover with soda water to cut the sweetness of the sugar you added.

TL;DR VERSION

Muddle a handful of mint leaves in a glass with fine sugar. Pour 1.5oz gin and 3/4 oz cilantro infused simple syrup into a cocktail shaker and stir with ice. Pour into the glass and cover with soda water.
