Servings 1 cocktail


  • 2 oz gin
  • 1 oz freshly squeezed satsuma mandarin juice
  • 3/4 oz Liber & Co Fiery Ginger Syrup (see Notes below to make your own ginger syrup!)
  • 1/2 oz freshly squeezed lime juice


  • For the satsuma mandarin juice: Each mandarin will produce about 1/2 ounce of juice, so choose 2 plump fruits and extract the juice using a citrus squeezer.
  • Add all ingredients to a cocktail shaker and fill it 3/4 with ice.
  • Shake until chilled, about 12 seconds. Strain into coupe glass and garnish with mandarin or lime.


To make your own ginger syrup:

  • 1/2 cup hot water
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons ginger juice (I used The Ginger People)
Combine all ingredients and stir until the sugar dissolves. Store in a covered container in the refrigerator for up to two weeks.
