Want to make a Mojito
Here is how:
•Start by adding a few mint leaves to your glass
•Add about 1/2 to 1 ounce of fresh lime juice
•Add 2 ounces of your favorite clear rum. We use @plantation.rum for our mojitos
•Add half an ounce of simple syrup
•Top with ice and shake gently. Just enough to mix the contents. Too vigorous of a shake will break down the mint leaves and release a bitter flavor, so go easy
•Pour the contents into your final glass, and top with soda water
•Smack a bouquet of mint in the palm of your hand to release the aroma of the mint and slide it into the ice so it’s sitting above the cocktail
•Garnish with a fresh lime wheel or dehydrated lime wheel for that picture perfect presentation
•Serve & enjoy!
Need to make simple syrup?
•Mix equal parts sugar and boiling water into a container and stir until sugar is fully dissolved. This mixture will last in the fridge for a few weeks
