Preparing a Mojito cocktail is quite easy and still very refreshing to 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 are proposed in summer. This is a variation of the classic Mojito cocktail with white rum, but with a different note because I have replaced sparkling water with lemonade. This cocktail will surely delight your man!
