Three Mojitos

broadsheet

One of the all-time favourites for summer is, of course, the Mojito. Cuba’s drink of choice, the classic combination of white rum, soda, sugar, mint and loads of lime is unbeatable. But a change is as good as a holiday, so here are three unorthodox mojito recipes to refresh yourself with.

 

Moscow Mojito

If you’re no fan of rum, this version’s a no-brainer: simply swap out the white rum for vodka. Halve some limes and gently muddle them in a glass with some fresh mint and some caster sugar.  Fill the glass with crushed ice, then add a swig of vodka, and top off with Schweppes Soda Water.

Milano Mojito

If you’re looking for something less sweet than your workaday Mojito, the Milano Mojito, with its slightly bitter edge, is for you. Instead of lime, quarter some oranges and muddle them together with sugar and mint. Add crushed ice to the glass, and pour over a swig of Campari, and a swig of white rum. Squeeze over the juice of a lime, and top off with Schweppes Soda Water.

Raspberry Mojito

We saw this one recently in the Gourmet Traveller, and it’s a goody: simply stick your lime, sugar and mint in a glass, add some fresh raspberries, and muddle very gently. Add your crushed ice, and pour in a slog of dark rum. Top with Schweppes Soda, and garnish with more raspberries.
