Minty Mojito Cocktail

• 25ml Light Rum
• 25ml Fresh Lime Juice

Traditional Method:
In the bottom of a hiball glass, muddle together the lime juice, sugar and mint leaves until the sugar is dissolved. Add the rum, then fill the glass with ice and club soda, before garnishing with a mint sprig.

Shaken Method:
Shake the lime juice, sugar, mint leaves and rum vigorously with ice in a cocktail shaker. Without straining, pour the entire contents in an Islande Hiball Glass and top with club soda. Garnish with a mint spring.

Our Mojito Kit allows you to make Mojito using either method.
