5 Cocktail Recipes You Need To Make This Summer - Mojito

The Mojito is simply a classic. The citrus and mint flavour may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but if you’re looking for a drink that’s refreshing and not super fruity this one’s for you!

“Have one of these for some serious refreshment!”  

Ingredients

  • 1½ limes, cut into wedges
  • 20 fresh mint leaves
  • 2½ tsp granulated sugar
  • Handful of ice
  • 65ml/2½fl oz white rum
  • Soda water
  • Fresh mint, to garnish

Method

  1. Place the limes, mint and sugar into a sturdy highball glass. Then mash with the end of a clean rolling pin, to release the mint and lime flavours.
  2. Add the handful of ice and pour over the rum.
  3. Add soda water to taste and stir well. Garnish with mint.
