Well, I feel like I might be cheating on this month’s challenge…..
1) I really don’t like mint. I only use it in a few things.
2) Because I don’t like it, I didn’t even want to learn about it (that’s lame, I know)
3) I live in a small town with a small grocery store, so no hope for fantastic fresh herbs, just the pre-packaged stuff.
4) I have always wanted to taste a Mojito….. so, there was no real challenge for me this month!
Just a nice, warm, happy feeling after working on and tasting this delish drink.
Here’s what you need:
A bit of sugar (Next time I will leave out the sugar - rum is already sweet)
Here’s what you do:
Muddle the mint, lime and sugar. I used a large glass and a wooden spoon.
Add ice, rum and soda water. I strained my drink (well, drinks – plural….) into my favorite glass. Look at that gorgeous color.
Beautiful! Keep messing with the quantities until you get it how you like it. Practice makes perfect, right?
