The Varnish Mint Ginger Beer

Today’s Secret Recipe comes The Varnish in Los Angeles. The Varnish is a dark, moody speakeasy, hidden behind Cole’s bar where mixologists handcraft custom cocktails. Skilled bartenders create choice drinks each night that are highly recommended.

Of course they serve some amazing cocktails with alcohol, but they also mix up some delicious “mocktails” for those who do not want to indulge. One of these refreshing drinks is the mint ginger beer. Easy to make and easy to drink. To make this into a cocktail, just add 1 ounce of vodka.
