Happy National Mojito Day, Americans!! Today is the day in which it is more than acceptable and almost obligatory to have one too many mojitos… in England too.
Here are a few recipes to fully embrace this celebration of such iconic Cuban drink – the cheesecake is a personal favourite ?
The Classic & Bolivian Mojito Cocktails
The Mojito is the perfect drink for those warm summer days at the beach when all you need is a super refreshing cocktail to sip on!
To make the classic Mojito you’ll need 40ml of rum, 15ml of fresh lime juice, 10 ml of sugar syrup, soda to top and a spring of mint. Clap the mint leaves between your hands, muddle them lightly at the base of the glass. Add crushed ice and all the other ingredients – stir well. Top with soda and garnish with a spring of mint. For the Bolivian Mojito, drop the lime juice and add 15ml of Agwa. Garnish with lime slices!
