When adding mint to your food recipes – a perfect pairing is a Mojito (pr: mow- HEE- toe). A refreshing addition to a meal... or on a lovely afternoon. Makes 2 hefty pint glasses:

  • 4-5 whole sprigs fresh Mint (about 4”-6” each)
  • 1 lime quartered
  • Plain Soda Water
  • A large glass to muddle the mint and rum
  • Martini shaker
  1. Pour the rum into a large glass
  2. zest a tiny amount of ΒΌ of a lime into the rum, squeeze in about 1-tsp of the juice.
  3. Stir
  4. Add the whole sprigs of mint and muddle (mash up) into the rum along with 3 squeezed lime wedges.
  5. Add ice to your martini shaker, pour in the muddled goodies and shake vigorously.
  6. Shake until it is so cold your hand hurts!
  7. Pour (not strain) everything over two iced pint glasses.
  8. Add just a splash of plain soda water, so you just get a hint of bubbles and serve immediately.
  9. If you like, rim each glass with a light coating of sugar.
  10. To Rim: rub a lime segment along the rim of each glass, dip onto a plate of sugar, shake off excess. Or for each pint glass, add about 2 ounces of simple syrup.
