We all love a good cocktail and there is nothing better than a Mojito on a hot summers day. With fresh mint, lime, a splash of soda water and of course a dash of rum, this cocktail is an easy option for a summer bbq or pool party.
- 20 fresh mint leaves (10 per glass)
- 1 lime, cut into 8 wedges
- 4 tablespoons caster sugar (2 each drink)
- 2 cup ice cubes (cup per drink)
- 2 shots of white rum
- Soda water
Place mint leaves and 2 lime wedges into the glass. Crush the mint and lime to release the mint oil and juice from the lime. Add one more wedge with the sugar and crush the added lime.
Add add and pour in one shot of rum. Top up with Soda water.
Place an extra lime slice and mint leaf for garnishing.
Drink, drink and enjoy.
There you have it a real lime and mint Mojito. If you are feeling a little adventurous, puree a handfull of berries and add it to the mixture.
