Mojito and an Award

A cocktail is an alcoholic mixed drink, containing spirits, mixers (soda / fruit juice), sugar, water and bitters, enhanced with ice, honey, milk, cream and various herbs.

Wanted to post a cocktail recipe since I started blogging, 2 years ago...Here’s celebrating 2 years of blogging and an award from Chandrani of Cuisine Delights. Sharing the award with all my fellow bloggers.
Pl collect the award from my blog and let's start the party with Mojito......


Mojito (pronounced: Mohito) is a traditional Cuban highball, traditionally made up of 5 ingredients, namely white rum, sugar (traditionally sugar cane juice), lime juice, sparkling water and mint.

When preparing a Mojito, lime juice is added to sugar (or syrup) and mint leaves. The mixture is then gently mashed with a muddler in the bottom of a glass to release their flavor. Then rum is added and the mixture is stirred to dissolve the sugar. Finally, the drink is topped with ice cubes & sparkling water and served in a Collins glass. Mint leaves and lime wedges are used to garnish the glass.

Ingredients: (1 Serve)

  • White Rum (Bacardi): 1.25 oz / 35 ml
  • Lime: 1 / Fresh lime juice: 0.5 oz / 15 ml
  • Mint Sprig: 1 / Mint leaves: 12
  • Sugar: 1 tbsp
  • Soda water: 2 oz / 55 ml
  • Ice, crushed

Procedure:

  1. Cut the limes into quarters and pick the mint leaves off of the stems.
  2. Place mint leaves in the bottom of a tall glass and add sugar & about three lime wedges. Muddle sugar, mint leaves and the lime wedges.
  3. Fill the glass with white rum and crushed ice (the glass should appear about 3/4th full). Shake / stir the mixture until fully blended.
  4. Transfer the shaken cocktail to another glass (As the muddled lime and mint often stick to the bottom of the glass). Fill the remainder of glass with soda water.
  5. Garnish with a lime wedge & mint sprig and serve with a straw.
