Raspberry Mojito

Prep Time6 mins
Total Time6 mins
Course: apertif
Cuisine: american
Servings: 1 person
Calories: 180kcal

Ingredients

  • 50 ml white Cuban rum
  • 20 ml Fresh lime juice
  • 2 bar spoons of fine white cane sugar white sugar dissolves better than brown sugar
  • 15 mint leaves take care that you do not use the stems when using Spearmint
  • 8 fresh raspberries
  • soda water optional
  • Ice cubes

Instructions

  • Add the mint leaves with the sugar into the glass and stir gently with a bar spoon. The aim is to lure the essential oils out of the mint without, however, pushing out the bitter substances through too rough a procedure.
  • Then add the juice of a freshly squeezed lime. It is better to pour the juice into the glass than to crush the lime together with the skin in the glass, otherwise bitter aromas from the skin could end up in the drink and spoil its taste.
  • Muddle the raspberries separately and add the pulp/juice to the glass.
  • Add the rum.
  • Fill the glass with ice cubes.
  • Stir gently. Add a splash of soda water if needed.
  • Garnish with a few mint leaves and a raspberry.
