When only a thirst quenching mojito will do!
The sun is out, the air is hot and there is only one thing that will truly quench your thirst - maybe after work that is! You guessed it, a cool, refreshing mojito.
So how do you make one that tastes as good as it does at the bar? Well, give this little recipe a try and enjoy this classic rum cocktail in the comfort of your own garden.
What you'll need
6-8 mint leaves
25ml sugar syrup (equal amounts sugar and water heated until sugar dissolves, cooled) or 4 teaspoons sugar
25ml lime juice
A heavy based glass
What to do
Slap the mint and add it to the bottom of the glass. Fill with crushed ice. Add the sugar syrup, lime juice and rum. Take a bar spoon with a flat bottom and use the disc to churn the mixture. Add more ice and churn again. You're looking for a frosting on the outside of the glass so that you know the mix is super cold. Cap with more ice so that the glass is full and the ice glistens on top. Add soda if you want to/if there's room at this point. Take your mint sprig and clap it between your hands to release the oils, then place next to a straw in the glass.
And there you have it! Enjoy folks.
