Mojito Cocktail

This is a short, enjoyable cocktail and easy to drink. It is also fairly easy to make!


  • White Rum
  • Sugar Syrup
  • Soda Water or Sparkling Water
  • Mint Leaves
  • Lime Wedges
  • Crushed Ice


  • Muddling Stick
  • Bar Spoon or long spoon.
  • High Ball Glass


  • Firstly, lightly 'muddle', (which is a bruising process for a couple of mint leaves and a couple of lime wedges using a muddling stick or bar spoon) in the bottom of the high ball glass.
  • Add the double measure of White Rum and the Sugar Syrup into the same glass.
  • Half fill the glass with crushed ice and stir with the bar spoon. Top up the glass with more crushed ice.
  • Add the Soda Water and a sprig of mint through the drink for flavour/decoration. With this type of cocktail it is not necessary to shake it in a normal cocktail shaker. Relax and enjoy!
