The star ingredient is the Lemon rum, which adds a zesty and tangy flavor to the drink. The mint leaves provide a burst of freshness while the soda water and lime juice give the cocktail a good amount of fizz and tang. The addition of sugar syrup brings a touch of sweetness and balances out the tartness of the lemon. This cocktail is perfect for those who love a light and refreshing drink with a hint of citrus. It is best served over ice and garnished with a slice of lime and a sprig of mint for a perfect summer drink.

FAQ's

PREPARATION_TECHNIQUES

How do I properly muddle the mint leaves for a Bacardi Lemon Mojito?

To properly muddle the mint leaves for a Bacardi Lemon Mojito, place the mint leaves and sugar syrup in the bottom of the cocktail glass. Use a muddler to gently press the mint leaves against the glass to release their oils. Do not shred the leaves; the goal is to bruise them to release flavor, not to tear them apart. This technique ensures the mint flavor is evenly distributed throughout the drink.

This adjustment allows you to maintain the cocktail's character while using what you have available.
