Classic Mint Mojito

Minty, zingy and super refreshing on a warm, sunny day. This classic cocktail is made with white rum, mint leaves, soda water and sugar. Serve with a fresh wedge of lime and slap the mint between your palms before adding them to the glass to bring out the fragrant oils without bruising the leaves.

(Servings: 1)

  • juice of 1 lime
  • 1 1 tsp sugar
  • small handful of mint leaves, plus more to serve

  2. Gently muddle the lime juice, sugar and mint leaves in a small jug, crushing the mint as you go. The end of a rolling pin works well for this.
  3. Pour into a tall glass and add a handful of ice.
  4. Pour in your rum and give it another stir with a spoon.
  5. Top up with soda water, garnish with mint and serve.
