Drink It Up: Gin Cocktail a.k.a. 3-2-1, Repeat

How is it Monday already? The weekend just flew by! I guess they usually do, but this one went especially fast. If you're like me and need something to lift your spirits after a long day of work, try this delicious gin cocktail. It's easy as pie to make and perfect for sipping. Plus it's light enough for spring. I think it's technically called The Southside, but I'm calling it a 3-2-1, Repeat (if needed).

3-2-1, Repeat Gin Cocktail 

Here's how to make it:

3 oz of Gin (I like Beefeater) 
2 oz of fresh Lemon Juice 
1 oz Simple Syrup (I used the Stirrings ready-made Simple Syrup but you can make your own)

Shake and strain over ice. Garnish with fresh mint and enjoy! Now, if you need to repeat, feel free. It is Monday, after all.
