Marvelous Mojito Monday...

Its been a while since I posted a really fabulous drink recipe, but I was surprised by a gift of this refreshing delight on Australia day and just had to share.....so here is Simone Scribbles with her awesome Mojito (and check out her blog while you are at it - hilarious !!!)


Make the mint infused sugar syrup by dissolving a cup of water and a cup of sugar on the stovetop.  When it’s dissolved, add about 6 mint leaves and let the mint linger for half an hour or so.  Take out the leaves and put the syrup in the fridge until you make the mojitos.



Put 1-2 ounces of sugar syrup in a glass.  Add about 6-8 mint leaves and stir. 

Fill the glass with crushed ice (it has to be crushed otherwise the mint leaves get to the top and it’s gross).

Add 1-2 ounces of white rum

Add the juice of about half a lime

Top up with soda water

Garnish with a slice of lime.

Tip – to make it seem extra fresh … before you add the slice of lime run a mint leave around the rim of the glass so it smells minty!


  1. I just made a mojito with the first batch of home grown mint at my house! Yum!
