A Fresh Cocktail to Enjoy in the Garden…
Ever since I made over my courtyard, I have had a constant supply of mint coming into the house. So what better way to use it up than by making a classic mojito cocktail? Mojito’s are delicious, something that I love ordering on nights out. However, until a couple of weeks ago, I had never made them at home. Which is strange as they are so easy to make.
Since producing cocktail making Reels for Instagram, I have been having fun making cocktails and experimenting with different spirits in drinks. Which lead me to make some of the classic cocktails. And the mojito is certainly one of them.
Now, we have to talk about simple syrup, a key ingredient in the mojito. You do not need to buy it, it’s so simple to make at home. It’s equal parts sugar and water, heated up until the sugar has dissolved. Once cooled, you’re ready to make your classic mojito cocktail…
CLASSIC MOJITO COCKTAIL.
For this cocktail, you’ll need the following:
100 ml rum
50 ml simple syrup
juice of one lime
mint, plus extra for garnish
Firstly, add some mint and the simple syrup to your shaker and muddle. Add ice, rum, lime juice and shake until you can no longer hold onto it. Add ice to your glass and pour your cocktail into it. Garnish with a lime circle and mint. Serve and enjoy.
