Mojito Cocktail Recipe

Whenever the sun is out all I want to do is sit in the garden and make 100 different cocktails to sip on. When I was on the plane home from Tunisia I picked up some Duty Free Spirits that I knew would be a perfect addition to cocktail cupboard (this mainly consists of Chambord, Plastic Shot Glasses and Martini Glasses!)

Sitting nicely in my top 5 favourite cocktails is THE MOIJTO.

The Mojito is minty, sweet and so refreshing. It's great to serve in a pitcher or just as individual drinks. I love to pile it high with crushed ice so it stays chilled and it is perfect for a hot afternoon in the sun.

1. Place a teaspoon of sugar in the glass, along with a sprig of mint and half a lime (cut in 2)

2. Using a 'muddler'... or a rolling pin if you don't have one of these, squash and mix all the ingredients together. You need to do this for a couple of minutes until the limes are juiced and you should be able to slightly smell the mint

3. Pour white rum into each glass, Traditionally most cocktails are made with 2 measures of alcohol so I have added 2 shots. How much run you put in is completely up to you depending how giddy you wish to get while watching the clouds pass!

4. Fill the glass with crushed ice (this can be bought from any Supermarket, usually around £1)

5. Top the glass with either Lemonade or Soda Water. Soda Water is more the traditional choice but I always use Lemonade as it's slightly sweeter

6. Place a 1/4 or lime and a small mint sprig to garnish, pop in a straw and sip away!
