The Shortcut Mojito

by Frederique Dangremond

A Mojito is the perfect patio drink, both refreshing and flavourful they are blast to drink but can be quite labour intensive to create. At Garden Bar we have made this whole process super easy for you. As when you use Garden Bar Mint Simple Syrup, all you have to do is mix it up! For this recipe you will need:

1 ½ oz. White rum
1
 oz freshly squeezed lime juice

1 oz. Garden Bar Mint Simple Syrup
½ cup Sparkling water
Optional: ¼ Lime and fresh mint leaves
Fill a tall glass with ice. Pour mint infused simple syrup, white rum and lime juice into a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake vigorously, then strain the cocktail into the glass with ice. Top off with club soda and stir in fresh mint leaves. Garnish with a lime wedge, if desired.

You can make a tasty and refreshing alcohol-free beverage (aka a "mocktail") by omitting the rum and substituting ginger ale for club soda.
