This is a really easy one, but worth sharing! Had this at Ana la Santa in Madrid and made up a recipe for it. Super refreshing cocktail for summer.
For 4 mojitos:
- 20 fresh mint leaves
- 2 ounces simple syrup
- 8 ounces white rum
- 12 ounces ginger beer (or just sparkling water)
- juice of 8 limes
- 4 teaspoons, finely grated fresh ginger
- mint leaves for garnish
Muddle the mint (with a mortar and pestle or a large wooden spoon) and syrup together. Add the rum, ginger beer, lime juice, and ginger. Mix and add in ice. Garnish each glass with a mint leaf!
