Hood Canal Lemonhead

These cocktails are served over ice, with shreds of muddled mint, and large mint sprigs for garnish.

These fun cocktails come in fun glasses, courtesy of Elizabeth’s college friends! We went to visit them at their place in Hood Canal, near Seattle and made these drinks one evening.

They were very lemon-centric, with Limoncello, citrus juice, and actual lemonade. We used mint from the garden – twice – and enjoyed a happy hour as we cooked dinner and watched the sun glinting on the water.


  • Limoncello, approx 2 oz.

  • Gin, approx 3 oz.

  • Mint from Nick’s garden – for muddling, and for garnish

  • Lemonade, approx 2 oz.

  • Limes and lemons, approx 2 – 3


  • Squeeze juice from citrus; shred or thinly slice mint leaves, and muddle together in a cocktail shaker.
  • Add ice and other liquids; shake until satisfied.
  • Garnish with full mint sprigs and enjoy this evening with friends!
