Have the gods of mixology ever invented anything so perfect for a hot summer day?
Derived from the Spanish word ‘mojadito’ for ‘a little wet’, the mojito, when perfectly mixed, is a sweet bubble of citrus, mint and rum, glorious rum. Here is a simple, easy cocktail recipe put together by the master mixologists at Denizen.
Simple Easy Rum Drink Recipe For The Traditional Mojito
- 1 1/2 oz Denizen Rum
- 6-8 fresh mint leaves
- 1/2 lime
- 2 tablespoons simple syrup*
- (or 4 teaspoons sugar)
- Club soda
- Lime wedge or mint sprigs for garnish
Place mint leaves, sugar and juice from half a lime in a glass. Muddle well with a pestle or fork. Add Denizen, top off with club soda, stir well and garnish with sprigs of mint or a lime wheel.
*To prepare simple syrup: Mix 2 parts sugar with 1 part water and heat until sugar dissolves. Let cool.
