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 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 =)
