Super easy to make but utterly delicious! I won't tell any tales here, I'll get right to the point. Though I will again add the disclaimer that this is not the 'official' way to make a mojito, it's my way.
What you will need for one drink is:
- 6 Mint Leaves;
- 5 Raspberries;
- 40ml Sugar Syrup;
- 1 tbsp Lime Juice;
- 25-35mls Bacardi (depending on how strong you like it);
- Soda water, enough to fill up the rest of the glass (about 60ml); and
- a couple of ice cubes.
I used tonic water instead of soda water, because we didn't have any and i was too lazy to go out and get some. I worked just as well but gave the drink a slight tang, you know the one I mean. The odd bitter taste that tonic water has. I counter-acted this by using more mint and sugar syrup.
What you do is throw the mint, raspberries, lime juice and sugar syrup into the glass. Then with the wrong heavy end of a knife smush it all up until the mix tastes very minty. Then top with the bacardi, soda and ice.
You can then either drink it like that with a straw:
Or if you don't have a straw, I suggest you strain it. It will taste just as good but you won't end up eating a load of mushy mint leaves.
