Mixing Tips

    General
  • Start with the cheapest ingredients (the syrup) first.
  • Ice
  • Try to add the ice cubes into the glass by the end. Do it carefully. Otherwise, you might spill the liquid, or due to the acid of the citrus juice, you will create a lot of foam that spills over.
  • Glassware
  • A chilled glass keeps your drink longer and more enjoyable. Your used ice will melt slower, and the taste will stay longer.
  • Technique
  • If you shake the herb, it will extract more flavor.
  • Don't pour any carbonated filler inside a shaker, and shake it! It will burst, and everything will spill over.
  • Garnish
  • Always use fresh herbs for the garnish.

RECIPE

Editor Recipe Notes

You must find your way through the library of Mojito cocktail recipes. There are so many versions of the Mojito out there. But we at the HYGGE Bar and Brasserie Hamburg prefer this recipe.

We like this one because it’s clean, there is no mint inside the glass, but you can still taste it. It requires a little more time to prepare, but it’s worth drinking. It’s minty fresh and cool.

The weird thing is that we do a shake on this Mojito recipe. And yes, we know you “should not” shake a mojito cocktail. However, we do it as we do and still use all the ingredients:
Rum, Mint, Lime, Sugar, and Soda Water.

You can try it and see if you like it =)
