It’s quite fun to make, and because you get to muddle things, you can really intensify the flavors that you love. Any herb, like mint or rosemary or thyme or lavendar, is quite potent, so a little bit goes a long way.

Orange and Mint Gin Spritzer

The easiest and most refreshing citrus and mint gin cocktail for a warm day.


  • 2 Oz. Gin
  • 1 Oz. Simple Syrup
  • Top Seltzer
  • 2-3 Slices Orange Save some for a garnish
  • 2-3 Sprigs Mint Set one aside for the garnish


  • In your mixer, smash up your oranges and mint. If you love mint, this will be great for you. If you sorta like mint, go easy on the mint here. If you only want a wiff of mint, just muddle the oranges.
  • Add simple syrup and gin to your orange mess.
  • Strain into your rocks glass, filled with ice already.
  • Top with seltzer or soda water to taste.
  • Garnish with orange peel, or orange slice, and mint.

But what about the sugar in the Orange Mint Gin Spritzer?

You can use simple syrup. It’s easy to make, and it keeps well in the fridge.

You can also just add regular sugar, and really let the grains of the sugar get muddled up. Sort of like making a mojito, but better because it’s gin.
