Mojito
One week to go people! Then we’re all sitting pretty on Christmas Day, not a care in the world.
Day 18 of your Adult’s Advent Cocktail Calendar- the Mojito- is one of the best known classics in the world, if not for it’s taste, then for how smug you feel as a 20 year old when you learn that the ‘j’ is silent. So learn-ed. So classy.
Birthed in Havana, Cuba, perhaps as far back as the 16th Century. The story goes that after a raid (#colonialism) a nobleman was sailing near toward Havana when an epidemic of scurvy and dysentery broke out on board. The locals were known for their medicinal know how, so a small party went ashore and came back with rudimentary rum, lime, sugar cane juice and mint. The name ‘mojito’ wasn’t around at the time, but we think it evolved from the Spanish ‘mojadito’= a little wet, or ‘mojado’= wet, after mass immigration to and from the area.
60mls rum
30mls lime juice*
8-10 fresh mint leaves
15 mls sugar syrup*
Soda water
Get yourself a lovely, tall glass and lightly smack your mint leaves, then place them in the bottom of the glass. Add your rum, lime, sugar and lightly mix through with the mint. Add ice mix ingredients through evenly. Top with more ice, and soda if you want. * Like most cocktails originating in Cuba, some people are sticklers for only using muddled fresh lime and granulated sugar. Totally up to you. We tend to serve these when the bar is 5 deep on a Saturday, so prefer the time saving syrups and juices we’ve prepared earlier. If you want to be a puritan substitute 1/2 a lime in wedges in place of juice, and 2 tsp sugar in place of syrup. Muddle together lime and sugar in a sturdy glass, then add mint, rum etc. .

BALLING ON A BUDGET TIP #9 your grocery store carries live herbs to replant. The planter is free with purchase of #juanita hominy. Also herbs are covered under EBT. Saving and reusing cans saves money and your carbon footprint. Plus fresh herbs flavor better. I got mint for drinks and basil & rosemary for cooking.
