Mojito cocktails are very refreshing any time of year but especially when the temperatures rise because their minty, yet tart flavour adds a cooling effect with the kick of the alcohol.
- Fresh mint leaves
- 1 tbsp honey
- 2 tbsp lemon juice
- 45 ml white rum
- 1 tsp myMatcha
STEP 1. Put mint, a splash of club soda, and the honey into the bottom of a highball glass or Tom Collins glass (if you like lots of ice and club soda). Muddle by mashing the ingredients together. Traditionally, a muddler, which looks like a miniature wooden baseball bat, is used to accomplish this. However, the handle of a wooden spoon or spatula works fine.
STEP 2. Squeeze the juice of the lime into the glass. Add the rum, stirring well.
STEP 3. Fill the glass about 3/4 of the way full with ice. Top off with club soda. Stir and enjoy. If serving in a Collins glass, adding a tall cocktail straw makes a nice and useful touch.
