Steve’s SCD Diet Healing Journal: Week 23 – SCD legal Summer Cocktails

Over the last month I've attended several events in which I knew I would love a summer cocktail but wouldn't be able to drink anything the host was providing. With the 4th of July holiday weekend approaching I figured I would share my current favorite SCD legal summer cocktail recipe. After trying several recipes I have to thank Carrie Floyd over at Culinate Kitchen for posting the Kimmy drink because it is by far my favorite. I put an extra spin on the original recipe and made a party sized batch so I will put those measurements in quotes. The prep time is a bit more than usual because of the mint syrup but it's not as bad as the many summer cocktails that contain pounds of fresh fruit that need to be diced up. It has an awesome fresh taste that is somewhere between a gin and tonic and a mojito. The drink can also be made non-alcoholic by removing the gin and using extra club soda (non-flavored carbonated water).
