We have made this Mojito with Makrut Lime leaves for an intense citrusy flavour and Palm sugar. You can also swap the lime leaves for Lemongrass or even Thai Basil!

Ingredients

  • Fresh Limes.
  •  Thai Taste Kaffir Lime Leaves.
  •  Thai Taste Palm Sugar.
  •  White Rum.
  •  Fresh Mint.
  •  Crushed Ice.
  •  Soda Water.
  •  To garnish - Lime wheels, Fresh Mint or Fresh Makrut/Kaffir Lime leaves.

Steps for cooking

  • 1.In each tumbler glass add in the juice of half a lime. Add 1 tsp of Makrut/Kaffir Lime Leaves and Palm Sugar and muddle. If you don't have a cocktail muddler you could use a small rolling pin or the back of a spoon.
  • 2. Place some fresh mint between your hands and 'clap'. This will help to release the oil and aromas from the fresh mint. Add this to each glass and muddle again.
  • 3. Fill the glass with crushed ice and pour 1 measure (50ml) of white rum to each glass.
  • 4. Fill to the top of the glass with soda water and garnish by sliding some lime wheels down the sides of the glass, then top with fresh mint or fresh Makrut/Kaffir Lime Leaves.
