Cocktail For The Weekend: Best-Ever Mojito

March 30, 2012

The mojito is a classic Cuban cocktail, and one of our all-time favourites. Make sure you use really fresh, fragrant mint for the best flavour.


4 mint leaves

1 lime

1 teaspoon sugar

2 ounces white rum

2 ounces club soda

1 sprig of mint (for garnishing)

crushed ice


1. Put the mint leaves into a tall glass and squeeze the lime juice over them.

2. Add the sugar and then muddle the mint, lime juice and sugar together. Add crushed ice.

3. Stir in the rum and top off with the club soda. Garnish with a mint sprig.
