One of the newer additions to the cocktail world, the Palmyra is No. 9 Park's mark on the mixologist world. It takes a little more effort than your run-of-the-mill vodka and [insert mixer], but the end product proves that mint and lime are clearly soulmates.

How to Mix

  1. Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice and shake for 15-20 seconds
  2. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass
  3. Garnish with two mint leaves tucked into a lime wedge to look like a bird taking flight on the edge of the glass
Mint Simple Syrup: Heat 3/4 cups of sugar and 3/4 cups of water in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Stir occasionally to ensure that sugar completely dissolves. After it comes to a boil, remove from heat and add 2 cups of coarsely chopped, fresh mint leaves. Let steep for about 2 hours and strain out the leaves, pressing firmly on the leaves with a spoon to extract essential oils. Reserve the syrup and chill.
