Dirty Cocktail Recipe of the Week- Minty Mojito



It's HOT outside and so today's Dirty Cocktail Recipe of the week is one that reminds me of someplace tropical with lots of palm trees..it's the Mojito. 
Here's what you'll need:
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar or 2 tablespoons Simple Syrup 
  • 8 to 10 fresh mint leaves, washed and dried
  • 1 lime, halved crosswise or 3 tablespoons freshly-squeezed lime juice
  • 2 ounces white rum
  • Crushed ice
  • 3 ounces mineral water or soda water, chilled
  • Mint sprigs for garnish


Place the mint leaves and sugar in a tall glass. Crush sugar or use the simple syrup and mint leaves with the back of a spoon or muddler for approximately 20 to 30 seconds until you can smell the mint.
Cut the lime in half, Squeeze the lime juice out from both halves of the lime into the serving glass  and then drop 1/2 lime into the glass.

Pour in the rum and stir. Add plenty of crushed ice and then top off the Mojito mixture with mineral water or club soda.

Garnish with a sprig of mint and enjoy! 


 

Sooooo Good and refreshing, you may want to make a pitcher!

Cheers,
