The one and only Mojito recipe
Ingredients for ONE glass of mojito:
*6 to 8 fresh mint leaves
*1 half lime
*10 ice cubes
*4 cl of white rum
*2 cl of syrup of cane sugar
*Some sparkling water
1/ Crush the ice by putting your ice cubes in a kitchen towel. You can then reserve your ice in the freezer.
2/ Put down mint leaves at the bottom of the glass. Be careful not to tear them because their essential oil stands on the surface of the leave.
3/ Cut the lemon in 6 pieces and add them into the glass.
4/ Add the syrup of cane sugar.
5/ Crush the lemon with a pestle for cocktail. The mint has to be at the bottom of the glass so that it is protected at the same time by the syrup of cane sugar and by the lemon (as explained at point 2 :)).
6/ Add the crushed ice by leaving approximately 2 cms between the edge of the glass and the ice.
7/ Add the rum thanks to a measuring glass and fill then the glass with the sparkling water.
8/ Mix the whole so that the cocktail is rather uniform.
Enjoy your mojito with beautiful big straw in the sun (ideally)!
