Cocktail Hour: Mojito

I'll let you into a secret: I make the worst mojitos ever. I don't know what it is, but they just seem to go a little bit wrong. Despite the (shocking) amount of rum I put in the last batch, they managed to taste of nothing but sour water. Impressive, huh?

So I thought I'd ask someone else who was a bit more of a mojito expert and here's a cocktail recipe that might just work:
  • 2 Shots white rum,
  • Juice of half a lime,
  • Soda water
  • Mint sprigs (around ten should do it)
  • Crushed Ice
  • Lime slice
  • Sugar
Mash the mint and sugar together. I mean really mash it. I think in the cocktail world this is called 'muddling' but we at Domestic Sluttery HQ will call it 'bashing and mashing', ok? Add the rum and lime juice and then shake it all up. Shake it lots! More than that! Do some arty cocktail moves too if you like (they're what make the cocktail taste yummy, aren't they?) Then pour over crushed ice. Decorate with a sprig of mint, and a wedge of lime.

Mmmm yummy.

  1. Not a massive fan of mojitos, I must say, but if you want a truly awesome cocktail recipe for summer you NEED to try the Grand Esprit....one shot of Grand Marnier and one shot of elderflower cordial, shake it up a bit with some ice cubes and top it up with soda, then bung a wedge of orange in it. Easy and gorgeous!
