Preparing a Mojito cocktail is quite easy and honestly, it’s still a very refreshing drink. The classic Mojito recipe consists of lime juice that you add to sugar (or syrup) and mint leaves. Then you have to mash gently this mixture with a muddler. The mint leaves should only be bruised — not shredded — to release the essential oils and flavors.
This is the typical kind of drink that is proposed in summer. This is a variation of the classic Mojito cocktail with white rum, but with a different twist; I have replaced sparkling water with lemonade. This cocktail will surely delight your man!
