About this recipe: This is an authentic recipe for a mojito. I sized the recipe for one serving, but you can adjust it accordingly and make a jug full. It's a very refreshing drink for hot summer days.

Brandy

Ingredients
Serves: 1 

  • 10 fresh mint leaves
  • 1/2 lime, cut into 4 wedges
  • 2 tablespoons sugar, or to taste
  • 5 or 6 ice cubes
  • 1 shot of rum
  • 120ml soda water

Method

  1. Place mint leaves and 1 of the lime wedges into a tall glass.
  2. Smash or crush the mint and lime to release the mint oils and lime juice.
  3. Add 2 more lime wedges and the sugar, and crush again to release the lime juice. Do not strain the mixture.
  4. Fill the glass almost to the top with ice. Pour the rum over the ice, and fill the glass with soda water. Stir, taste and add more sugar if desired. Garnish with the remaining lime wedge.
