mojito

Tuesday, 6 August 2013

after months of testing with a meticulous eye and a finely-tuned palatte, we’ve finally hit on the perfect mojito recipe.

Ingredients

  • 4 fresh mint sprigs
  • 1/2 ounce freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 1/2 ounce Simple Syrup
  • 3 ounces white rum
  • 2 ounces club soda, chilled

Instructions

  1. Muddle the mint sprigs, the lime juice, and the simple syrup in glass measuring cup and press gently against the mint with the back of a spoon to release the oils. Refrigerate for at least an hour.
  2. Fill a 8 ounce glass with ice, and add an ounce of the refrigerated mixture and the 3 ounces of rum. Top with club soda and garnish with the remaining mint sprig.
