Mojitos are a popular summer drink, whether at a party or at home. Read on, and we will share our favorite mojito recipe.
There are many variations of the traditional mojito. So if you do not have easy access to some of the traditional ingredients, you can use an alternative ingredient.
You can substitute the type of sugar or use different rum. Additionally, you can use fresh fruit for extra flavoring,
- 45 ml white rum
- 30 ml freshly squeezed lime juice
- Six sprigs of mint
- Two teaspoons of cane sugar
- 100 ml sparkling soda water
- Crushed Ice
Add mint leaves to the mortar. Then add your fresh lime juice and sugar to the mortar. Gently press and twist the mint with a pestle or wooden spoon. Do not shred the mint. You just want to lightly crush it so to release the flavor of the mint.
Add rum to the mortar and stir to dissolve the sugar.
Add a few tablespoons of crushed ice into a tall glass and pour the ingredients into the glass. Top the drink with sparkling soda water and lightly stir.
Garnish with some more crushed ice on top, mint leaves, and lime wedges, and drink!
Cheers! We hope you love this recipe.
