For this cocktail, we visit News Café. This original Mojito is a hot favourite amongst their patrons.
You will need:
- 2 tots Bacardi Light Rum
- 1 tot Monin Mint Syrup
- 4 lime wedges
- 10 mint leaves
- Soda Water to top it up.
To make this Mojito is very easy. You muddle the limes and slap in mint leaves, add Bacardi and Monin Mint. Half fill the glass with crushed ice. Stir mix, fill the glass to the top with crushed ice and top with soda.
Our question was what is muddled lime?
A muddler is a long, pestle-shaped tool used to crush fruit and herbs. A mojito, for example, requires limes muddled with mint leaves. Use a long, metal muddler and a thick-walled glass or short metal shaker to avoid chipped glass or wood shards in your drink.
