Mojito is a traditional Cuban highball (alcoholic cocktails which have less of alcohol and more of non-alcoholic mixer) ideal to refresh you after a long hard day. It has many variants and given below is the process to make one of the most commonly available variant. INGREDIENTS
- 2 tablespoons of lime juice (roughly 30ml).
- 2 heaping teaspoon of superfine white sugar.
- 1 cup crushed ice.
- 12-15 fresh mint leaves, 4-5 to garnish.
- 60ml white rum (use Bacardi for good results).
- 2 tablespoons of club soda (roughly 30ml).
NOTE: All the measurements given are given for a 300ml glass (such as Collins or a highball glass). For more quantities multiply the ingredients accordingly. PREPARATION In a Collins glass, add the lime juice and sugar and stir until the sugar dissolve. Add ½ the crushed ice. Rub mint leaves around the rim of the glass and tear some leaves in the glass. Use the stirrer to muddle the ice and leaves and stir for 5 seconds. Add white rum, soda and rest of the ice. Stir again for 5-10 seconds, garnish with mint and serve immediately while it’s still chilly.
