Mojito

Equipment

  • A muddler (or rolling pin)
  • A spoon
  • A long glass

Ingredients

  • 2 parts Bacardi Carta Blanco
  • ½ fresh lime
  • 12 fresh mint leaves
  • 2 heaped bar spoons of caster sugar
  • Dash of soda water
  • Cubed ice
  • Crushed ice
  • To Garnish: Sprig of Fresh Mint

How to mix

  1. Put the four lime wedges into a glass, then add the sugar and muddle (squish everything together) to release the lime juice
  2. Put the mint leaves on one hand and clap. This bruises the leaves and releases the aroma. Rub the mint leaves around the rim of the glass and drop them in. Use a muddler, bar spoon (or even a rolling pin) to gently push the mint down into the lime juice
  3. Half fill the glass with crushed ice and pour in the Bacardi Carta Blanco. Stir the mix together until the sugar dissolves
  4. Top up with crushed ice, a splash of the soda water and garnish it with a sprig of mint
