The Soho is part of a collection of New York City inspired cocktails created for New Amsterdam in 2009 and it is a delightful drink, particularly for those who love to use herbs.
In this drink, you will find mint, lemongrass, and ginger paired with the botanicals of the gin. Back that up with agave nectar (which is recommended over the optional simple syrup here), lime, and ginger ale and you have a fascinating highball that is perfect for spring and summer sipping.
