- mint leaves
- soda water
This drink has it’s origins in warmer climes, where the lime is not an expensive imported citrus and rum is a plenty.
You’ll find that this drink lends itself well to hot summer days by the pool. When I drink Mojito’s (pronounced mo-hee-to) I always feel good about it, well to be honest with you I feel pretty good about drinking any drink, but with this drink I almost feel like I’m doing my body a favour. I mean drinking soda water, fresh citrus, fresh citrus juice and fresh mint must be good for me right? Well apparently not, judging by the Mo-hangovers, but it is too tasty a drink to resist and the day after is still much less an ordeal than when drinking preservative filled wines and cocktails.
Note:You‘ll need a muddler (thin rolling pin or pestle will do), a tall glass and a 30ml shot glass for this recipe.
