Mojitos are probably our favourite cocktails. We’ll drink most varieties - and using raspberries makes for the perfect summer drink. These ingredients make 2 drinks.
You will need:
about 15 raspberries, plus a couple more for the garnish
about 15 shredded mint leaves, plus garnish
juice of 1/2 lemon
2 tsp simple syrup
50ml (2 measures) white rum
1. Divide the raspberries, mint, lemon juice, rum and simple syrup (equal parts sugar and water, instructions here), between 2 tall glasses. 2. Muddle the ingredients together in the bottom of the glass. 3. Add ice - we normally used crushed ice, but this time we made fancy ice cubes with raspberries and mint inside. 4. Top up with soda water or lemonade.5. Garnish with a couple of raspberries, a sprig of mint, and a lemon wedge.
I love that I can sliiiiiightly class making cocktails as ‘work’.
