The Fool Moon

2 oz Gin, Hendrick's
34 oz Simple syrup (Homemade 1:1)
12 oz Lemon juice
1 t Crème Yvette
4 lf Mint
Instructions
In a Collins glass: Press and muddle mint and syrup. Add ice and gin. Stir while topping off with soda. Add Yvette. Garnish with thin lemon wheel and mint sprig.
Notes
Hendrik's can be substituted for another type of gin depending on preference. I chose it for it's bouquet and how it interacts with the Yvette and mint.
History
A variation of the 1941 Blue Moon Cocktail. I simply made it taller, slower, more floral and a bit sweeter.
