Recipe for the perfect Classic Mojito – adjust to suit your own tastes
about half a lime, cut into small wedges
about 4 mint leaves
1 teaspoon sugar
25-50 ml white rum
Add the lime wedges, mint leaves and sugar in a short glass. Use a muddler (or back of a wooden spoon) to crush the mixture slightly and release the lime juice.
Add a few blocks of ice, then add the rum and top with a little soda water. Mix with a spoon or straw, and serve at once.
