Cocktail: Mojito


A mojito, the classic, well-loved cocktail from Cuba is one of my favourite alcoholic drinks of all time. It is incredibly moreish, so drink with caution…


  • 1 shot of freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 1 shot of sugar syrup
  • 20 fresh mint leaves
  • 2 shots of white rum
  • crushed ice (I put ice cubes in a small food processor and blitz for a few seconds to make this quickly)


  1. In a highball glass, with a rolling pin, mash the mint leaves, lime juice and sugar syrup. Add the crushed ice so the glass is almost full, then pour over the run.
  2. Add a splash of soda water and give a good mix before garnishing with a sprig of mint leaf.
