Mojito cocktail recipe
25 August 2009 @ 13:34

Mojito is a combination of rum, lime, mint and sugar. The Mojito cocktail is originally from Cuba but is very popular in Spain, particularly in chiringuitos along the costas. They were also selling litre glasses of this stuff at the Malaga feria!

Mojito cocktail

Ingredients
2 tsp sugar (white or brown, depending on your preference. Brown tends to work well with darker spirits)
½ a fresh lime chopped into quarters
6-8 fresh mint leaves
Crushed ice (put ice in a tea towel and smash it with a rolling pin)
2 measures of rum
Soda to top

Directions
1. Muddle sugar and limes in a glass, using the end of a rolling pin to squeeze out the juice and start to dissolve sugar.

2. Add mint and muddle a little more.

3. Fill the glass with crushed or cracked ice. Add the rum and stir the ingredients to equally distribute flavour.

4. Top with soda and a little more crushed ice to garnish.
