Mint Invasion – Part II: Mojito

September 13, 2012

Most of you probably know how to make a mojito, but when was the last time you did make one? Perhaps you don’t have a muddler. Well, neither do I. What I do have, though, is the night off from work and a lifetime supply of mint leaves. See Mint Invasion Part 1 for more on that.

This is a quick version of the mojito; instead of grinding my ingredients with a muddler, I just mix everything in a bowl.

Serves 2 or 1 very thirsty person

You’ll need:

• 3 oz (90ml) white rum
• 1.5 oz (45ml) fresh lime juice (about 1 lime)
• 10 spearmint leaves, torn apart
• 2 tablespoons sugar
• crushed ice
• club soda

In a bowl, mix together the rhum, lime juice, mint, and sugar.
Pour the mixture into two glasses, add crushed ice, top off with club soda, a few slices of lime, and a sprig of mint.
