How do I make a Mojito?

Cocktail Colin says:

quote start

If you're looking to make a refreshing Mojito, you're in for a delightful experience. The Mojito is a classic Cuban cocktail known for its crisp flavors and cooling characteristics, perfect for any warm day or evening gathering. Below, I'll guide you through the steps to craft this beloved drink.

Here's what you will need:

  • 20ml Lime Juice
  • 15 Mint Leaves
  • 45ml White Rum
  • 2 teaspoons Sugar
  • Soda Water (top up)

Steps to prepare:

  1. Begin by placing the mint leaves and sugar at the bottom of a highball glass. Gently muddle them together to release the mint’s aroma and natural oils. Be careful not to tear the mint leaves into pieces.
  2. Next, add the fresh lime juice. This will help to dissolve the sugar and infuse the mint flavor into the liquid.
  3. Fill the glass with crushed ice, which helps to chill the drink quickly.
  4. Pour in the white rum, adding a smooth and slightly sweet depth to the cocktail.
  5. Top up the glass with soda water, giving the Mojito its characteristic effervescence.
  6. Gently stir the mix to blend the ingredients evenly, making sure not to agitate the soda too much.
  7. Finally, garnish with a sprig of fresh mint on top for an added aromatic experience.

The result is a well-balanced mix of tangy lime, sweet sugar, aromatic mint, and smooth rum, all brought together with a refreshing fizz from the soda water. Sip and enjoy your handcrafted Mojito!
