The Red Apron's Mojito Cocktail

 
 
 
 
While the men had their Beers for the Superbowl,
we Ladies had Mojitos.
 
Just a classic Mojito recipe is best.
No add ons.
The secret to a great Mojito is using only fresh ingredients.











Ingredients:


6-8 Mint Leaves
1/2 Lime
4 tsp sugar or 2 tbsp simple syrup (see note)
Ice
1 Part White or Clear Rum
3 Parts Club Soda




Method:


In a shaker, lightly mash the Mint leaves, Lime, Sugar and a few pieces of ice until the inner essence is released. (Try to avoid muddling in a glass, to prevent glass breakage.)
Top with Ice.
Add Rum and Club Soda. Stir gently, and transfer to a glass.
Garnish with Lime and a Sprig og Mint.


SIMPLE SYRUP:

2 Parts Sugar
3 Parts Water

Heat water and sugar. Bring to a boil. Stir until sugar dissolves.
Take off from heat, cool.
Store in Fridge for up to a month.



Note:

Some recipes would let you add 12 mint leaves, DON'T! 
Take my word, the mint will overpower your drink.
And before you can finish your drink you'll be so annoyed with those leaves getting caught up the straw.



ENJOY  and DRINK RESPONSIBLY!!!
