Summer cocktail.... Mood = Mojito Madness

I love having a drink every now and then and a Mojito is first on my list when the summer has arrived and moods have gone up. I think there is nothing better than a cool refreshing drink with mint, soda, crushed ice, and rum..... Yumm!

My husband does not drink.... BUT he does make the best Mojito EVER. I even get him to make them for my clients as they think his are the BEST as i have heard them say. Its just a natural instinct to make things taste so good. You either have it or you don't. But this way i am going to show you how to make his mojito and make it in bulk. So you don't have to keep remaking the drink when you need and want it.





















 I was going to write this post last night when i was drinking it, but it would have been a disaster. The bulk method gives all the flavours time to infuse and really develop....

So my husband Pavlos's measures go something like this.....


Recipe:

1 part Bacardi
2 parts tonic water
3 T soft brown sugar
3 limes
bunch of mint
(This is per drink)
Method:

  • Bash the limes with a small rolling pin with the sugar. This will help create grit.
  • Add the tonic and Bacardi and mix.
  • Add the chopped mint leaves and stir, not forgetting the most important thing.... Crushed ice!
  • Serve




Now you can quadruple this recipe or even multiply it by ten. It works. I personally like mine very sweet, so at the end of the day it has to suit your taste.

Enjoy making these summer hits and be merry!!!! (drink safely too)

You should definitely use your matcha! :) It's so good for you, and adds a beautiful color to anything it touches.

Love you blog, you have wonderful photos!
