Pomegranate Mojito

Pomegranate MojitoSo good and perfect for a pre-Saturday evening.

 

You’ll need:

  • White Rum
  • Limes
  • Mint
  • Club soda
  • Simple syrup (I’ll give you a recipe)
  • Pomegranate seeds
  • Crushed Ice

 

Directions:

  1. Cut the lime into 4 pieces and put 2 pieces 1/2 the lime in a glass, add 1-tbs simple syrup and 2 ounces of Rum
  2. Muddle this together making sure to squeeze the juice from the limes
  3. Take 10 mint leaves and smack them between your hands (This releases the oils)
  4. Rub them around the rim of the glass then put them in the glass
  5. Fill with crushed ice and then club soda
  6. Add some pomegranate seeds (optional)
  7. Mix with a spoon or pour into another glass
  8. This will mix it perfectly

Simple Syrup

  1. Simple syrup is equal parts of water and sugar in a small pot and brought to a boil for 3 minutes
  2. Allow that to cool before using

 

Why slap the mint and not muddle it? If you muddle it the mint becomes very bitter. Slapping it will release the mint oils and that’s all you need.
