Mine’s a Mojito!

I love a good Mojito, it’s the combination of zingy fresh lime and mint, and of course rum that really hits the spot for me. Although the weather recently has been atrocious, whip this cocktail up, close your eyes, and you’ll be transported to a Caribbean island, with sand in you toes, and lapping sea in your ears.

Muddle half a lime and a couple of sprigs of  mint in a tall glass, stir in a tablespoon of brown sugar and add a good double shot of a reasonably decent rum, I like Appletons  or Havanna Club. Stir until well combined, fill the glass with crushed ice, and top up with soda water, give a good stir, add a couple of drops of Angostura Bitters to the top (Ilike the little bit of complexity this adds), and garnish with a sprig of mint, and a wedge of lime.

Close eyes and dream of sunny shores……
