Bonus hipster points for using a jar
"Sir Francis Drake invented the early Mojito and it was known as 'El Draque'. Rum was safer to drink than water on ships, limes tackle the scurvy, mint and sugar are added for taste" - Possible Lie
The mint in my herb garden is growing out of control, so to curve this behaviour I am cutting bits off it and showing it who's boss by using its delicious flavoured leaves in my Mojitos. That'll teach it!
However I've hit a bit of a problem, they just don't taste right!
They taste okay, but nowhere near the level I've had when a professional makes them for me.
I was following this recipe:
I made two, but all Stacey could taste was the Bacardi (even though she got the weaker one..) and all I could taste was soda water. In the end I drank both of them as they still went down ok and got a nice buzz. At least that part worked.
I don't really drink soda water in anything else as I don't particularly like the taste, so I tried with Lemonade. That was better as it didn't taste like soda water, but way too sweet.
Inja liked the one I made him with soda water, but it just wasn't for me.
How do you make mojitos? What do you use to top it up? What the fuck am I doing wrong?
