Dinner Classics: Happy Hour Cocktail

This week, cocktail maestro Norm Owen lends his professional guidance to that aromatic Cuban thirst-quencher, the Mojito!

Mojito

In a Collins glass (tall), gently muddle a dozen or so mint leaves.  Just bruise them, do not tear them. 

Add:
2oz good quality Rum (Havana Club 3 Year Old, for e.g.)
 .75oz simple syrup*
.75oz lime juice
Stir liquids to infuse them with the mint
Fill the glass with ice, crushed if you have it
Top with soda water, and enjoy!


Variations:
Add other flavours at the muddling stage, such as raspberries
Use different juices, such as passionfruit
Norm’s advice: Have fun with it!
*To make simple syrup, heat equal parts water and white sugar on the stove until sugar dissolves. (It’s called simple syrup for a reason!)
