Mojito’s are the perfect drink if you’re sitting out on a hot day. The mint gives it a really refreshing taste, quenching your thirst. It isn’t incredibly alcoholic and even if you don’t like rum (like me) you can still give this drink a try as you don’t really taste the rum as the other ingredients overpower the taste.
If you don’t want to make a strawberry mojito you can just make a regular one by not adding the strawberry, or make any other type of mojito by using fruit such as blueberries, raspberries and grapefruits, for example.
What You Need
– White Rum
– Sugar Syrup
– Mint Leaves
– Soda water
1. Pick out between 5 to 8 mint leaves, typically five would be ideal but if the leaves are small then make sure you add a couple extra.
2. Hold the leaves in your hand and smack them with your other hand, this releases the taste and gives it that extra oomph.
3. Cut 5 lime wedges and squirt the juice from them into the glass, then add the lime in the glass.
4. Add 37.5ml (a single measure and a half a single measure) of Bacardi/white rum.
5. Measure 12.5ml of sugar syrup and add to the glass.
6. Add cut strawberries to your drink, add more if you want a strong strawberry taste and only a couple if you want a hint.
7. Use a muddler, or anything you can find which will work just as well and crush the mint and limes together with the liquids you have added. Make sure the mint leaves are crushed up and the limes look like the juice has been squeezed out of them.
8. Add ice and use a cocktail spoon, or anything you have which will work just as well and ensure the leaves and limes are throughout the drink and not just lying in the bottom of the glass. If you have crushed ice this will work a lot easier, but if you only have regular ice just try your best. I don’t have crushed ice either so I have worked as well as I could with what I have.
9. Top up the rest of the drink with Soda Water.
Next week I will be showing you how to make a Purple Rain. And yes. It is just as good as the Prince song!
