Mojito

What is it?
A mojito is a cocktail that consists of five key ingredients: white rum, sugar, lime juice, soda water and mint.

Where is it from?
While the exact origin of this classic cocktail is the subject of debate the birthplace of the mojito is in Cuba.

What does it taste like?
A mojito shouldn't be overly sweet, minty nor limey. The emphasis should be on is on the soda and rum. It is very refreshing. They go down so easy on a hot summers afternoon.

Tip

Where possible used crushed ice instead of ice cubes in your mojitos. Crushed ice will melt faster, which is a good thing in a drink with such strong flavours. The extra surface area of crushed ice also means a colder drink.

Ingredients

  • 60ml Bacardi Rum
  • 4 lime wedges
  • 2 heaped teaspoons castor sugar
  • 10-12 mint leaves
  • Dash of soda water

Method

1. Muddle the limes and sugar in the serving glass.
 
2. Add the Bacardi Rum, mint and crushed ice and stir well.
 
3. Top with soda water and fresh ice to finish.
 
4. Garnish with a mint sprig.
