Description

Lovely cocktail for a hot summer's day.  In my opinion this is the most refreshing of all (alcoholic) cocktails.  Originating from Cuba you would expect the locals know how to kick back and cool off.

Cocktail Type
Serves
14
  • 10 fresh leaves of mint
  • 1/2 medium sized lime
  • 2 tablespoons caster sugar
  • 1 cup ice cubes
  • 45 ml white good quality rum
  • 125 ml soda water
Methods/steps

For a great Mojito, a muddler is essential.

Step 1.  Chop the lime into four pieces

Step 2. Put two of the lime wedges into the glass together with the mint leaves and crush with a muddler until the lime and mint combine

Step 3.  Add the other lime slices and the sugar and muddle some more

Step 4. Fill the glass with ice, then pour in the soda followed by the rum

Additional Tips

If you don't have a muddler a small rolling pin can do the trick.  Also whatever you do, don't strain the ingredients.  The Mojito is not meant to be a 'smooth' drink!

You should never muddle or shake mint as you will break the stems and get a sour taste through the drink, just slap the mint to bruise and put in glass.
