If you don’t know your tablespoon from teaspoon, liquor from cocktail or sugar from salt, then we here at Drink To That are here to help you make that magnificent mojito.
4 sprigs of fresh mint
50ml of fresh lime juice
½ teaspoon granulated sugar
100ml club soda
2 wedges lime (to add as garnish)
Mint leaves (again, to add as garnish)
Put two mint leaves in a cocktail shake, add ice, the rum and lime juice. Add the granulated sugar and bruise the leaves to release their essence. Strain the mixture into a tall glass, add the club soda and use the lime wedge as a garnish.
Why think of the cold wintery months coming up when you can be distracted by the yumminess of this refreshing cocktail? We certainly will be.
