Easy Mojito Recipe

There is nothing as refreshing as a Mojito when the days are hot and steamy.There must be something about the combination of the fresh lime, fresh mint, a hint of sweetness and that tiny tingly bubbles that is totally irresistable to me!

Now don't get discouraged, it is really really easy to make a Mojito.

Here is my Easy Mojito Recipe for everyone who asked and for all you Mojito fans out there!


1 tot (25ml) or 1oz White Rum
12 Mint leaves
1 large Lime or 2 small limes - cut into wedges
1 tot (25ml) or 1 oz fresh Lime juice
1 tbsp Sugar syrup *
Soda water (Club soda)

In a highball glass muddle Mint leaves, Lime wedges and Sugar syrup together. This will bring out all the flavours.
Add the Rum and fresh Lime juice and muddle all together.
Top off with Soda water.
Garnish with a sprig of mint and some lime slices.

Nothing can be easier. Enjoy!

* You can make your own Easy Sugar Syrup. Put 2 cups of sugar in a jug, then pour 1/2 cup of boiling water over it. Stirr until all the sugar granules has disolved and you are left with a syrup. It can keep in the fridge for a long time and you can use it in all sorts of cocktails. I put mine a squeezy bottle, and it works great!
