A Classic Cocktail: The Mojito

The Mojito can be traced back to the 19th century and has now become one of the world’s most popular drink. A favourite of Ernest Hemingway’s it is a very refreshing rum-based minty cocktail, especially enjoyed in heat of summer.

Recipe

Ingredient:

  • Measure Rum
  • 50 ml Fresh Lime
  • 25 ml or 6-8 wedges
  • Sugar 2 spoons
  • Mint 6 leaves
  • Soda top

Often around 20 ml of sugar syrup (gomme) is used to sweeten the drink instead of granulated; it makes it easier to balance the drink.

There are two general methods when producing a Mojito, muddle and non-muddle

Muddle Method

Add to a Collins glass 6-8 lime wedges and sugar then muddle until the lime juice is free. Then add the rum and mint leaves and give a little stir. Then fill to the top of the glass with crushed ice and churn the drink until everything is well mixed. Finally, top the glass with soda and garnish with a mint sprig and lime wedge.

Non-Muddle Method

Add rum, lime juice, sugar, mint and 2 squeezes of lime to a Collins glass. Then fill to the top of the glass with crushed ice and churn the drink until everything is well mixed. Finally, top the glass with soda and garnish with a mint sprig and lime wedge.

There are many variations of the Mojito:

Fruit Mojito – fresh muddled fruit or fruit flavoured liqueurs added
English Mojito – made with gin instead of rum
