Nothing says refreshment like a great mojito! Here’s one of our favorite recipes just in time for the last legs of summer.
6-8 mint leaves
25ml sugar syrup (1:1)
25ml lime juice
- Slap the mint and add 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.
