The Perfect Mojito
Nothing says summer like a perfect mojito, so start crushing that ice and get yourself some mint
The perfect mojitoCourse: CocktailCuisine: CubaDifficulty: Easy
50 ml white rum
25 ml lime juice
12 mint leaves
2 tsp extra fine sugar
25 ml soda water
1 sprig of fresh mint
Put the sugar into the glass and take the lime wedges. Squeeze them as best you can to get the most juice out. Gently press together the limes and sugar.
Add the mint to the glass and press the mint gently to release the oil. Don’t crush it.
Next, fill the glass until about half of it with crushed ice. Add white rum and churn.
Top with soda and some more crushed ice if needed and garnish with a mint sprig.
Take the glass in one hand, or two. Slowly take a sip and enjoy the taste while looking at the beautiful views around you
