Mojito is a classic cocktail punch from Cuba. It's very simple, with only five main ingredients. And it's the perfect drink for summer because it's light, flavorful, and refreshing.
Using fresh mint leaves that have been muddled with your wooden pestle is important to get that perfect mojito. Bruising the mint leaves with the pestle will release the essential oils that add all of the flavor. Just shredding the leaves won't access these oils so muddling is a necessary step.
For your next summer get together, pull out your KROK and the mango wooden pestle to make this delicious cocktail for your friends and loved ones.
Perfect for warm weather or whenever you want a refreshing cocktail!
Pick off mint leaves and add into mortar with sugar. Bruise leaves and grind mixture with wooden pestle.
Add sugar/mint mixture into a shaker then add lime juice, rum, and ice. Shake vigorously.
Use a filter to pour from shaker into a glass with ice and then top with the soda water and sprig of mint.
