Long on mint, strong on rum, with a hint of ginger for a little warmth, this Mojito is the perfect escapist drink.
1/4 cup mint leaves
1 teaspoon grated ginger
2 teaspoons brown sugar
1 oz Fresh lime juice
1 1/2 oz White rum
Soda water/club soda
Garnish: lime wedge and mint leaves
Mix it Up!
Muddle mint, ginger, sugar and lime juice in sturdy bottomed glass. You want the mint to become fragrant. Fill glass with ice and pour rum over the ice. Top up with soda water. Mix gently.
Garnish with sprig of mint leaves and lime wedge.
