What To Do With Your Herbs Part 3
Here is another “What To Do With Your Herbs” Part 3. This time we are talking mint and making them into mojitos!! What I love about using mint for summer drinks is that it gives the drink such a refreshing taste, even if you add it to water.
Needless to say, my mint was over grown and it needed help! The great thing about this recipe is that you can interchange it with any seasonal fruit or flavored rum you would like. The possibilities are endless!
What You Need:
Mint Leaves (about four or five large ones per drink)
1/2 oz Simple Syrup (1/2 cup of water and 1/2 cup of sugar, dissolved over heat)
1/2 Lime (juice)
2 oz Rum
Club Soda or Sparkling Water (I used Bubly)
What To Do:
- Muddle the mint leaves in a glass. If you do not have a muddler, you can rip the leaves up and take a sturdy large spoon and jam it into the mint and try to break it up. I mean this is real classy and how I do it haha
- Add in 4 four berries and mash with the mint leaves.
- Pour in the lime juice and the rum.
- Add a few ice cubes and top off your drink with sparkling water.
