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.....
1 part Bacardi
2 parts tonic water
3 T soft brown sugar
bunch of mint
(This is per drink)
- 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!
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)
