Even though spring isn’t here yet we want to jump the gun and celebrate the weekend with a tasty and fresh mojito.
Mojito is a traditional Cuban highball with all those summer fresh ingredients we dream about during the cold winter months. Enjoy the coolness and celebrate summer indoors.
Ingredients (serves 1)
4cl white rum
1tsp raw cane sugar
A handful of fresh mint leaves
Top up with club soda
Start with the ice. If you don’t have crushed ice, put the ice cubes in a plastic bag or on a towel and fold it over the ice. Take a shoe or meat hammer and smash it, go wild, it sure is liberating. Put the ice aside and cut the lime into 4-6 wedges.
Pour the sugar into the glass you’ve chosen for your drink, we recommend a high ball glass. Put the lime wedges and mint leaves on top of the sugar and start muddling everything into a nice mash.
Take your crushed ice and put on top of your lovely mint-lime mash. Next, pour the rum on top, followed by the club soda and some mint leaves. Cheers!
