The best Mojito's start with a simple syrup, are loaded with fresh mint and topped with fizzy water and are super easy to make! It's the perfect drink on a hot summer days! This Mojito works beautifully with Epicure's Blue Butterfly Tea as well.
Ingredients: Hibiscus Bliss Tea, 1/2 c sugar, mint, 1 lime, Ice cubes, club soda
Make your Simple Syrup:
½ c water
Bring to the boil (I typically put it in my Epicure rectangular steamer and cook 1 min or boil in multipot). Let this steep /cool down and pour into an Epicure cruet or glass car for easy pouring or spooning.
To make your Mojito - in a tall glass
1-3 Tsp of Simple Syrup
A handful of fresh mint
Muddle - Mix around to bruise the mint and release flavor - if you don't own a muddler, a spoon works!
ADD: Sparking Water or Club soda to the top of your glass
Drizzle on a bit more Simple Syrup
Squeeze in some fresh lime using your Epicure Citrus Press!
