▷ Classic Mojito
This is an authentic recipe for a mojito. I sized the recipe for one serving, but you can adjust it accordingly and make a pitcher full. It's a very refreshing drink for hot summer days. Be careful when drinking it, however. If you make a pitcher you might be tempted to drink the whole thing yourself, and you just might find yourself talking Spanish in no time! Tonic water can be substituted instead of the soda water but the taste is different and somewhat bitter.

Mix this classic cocktail for a party using fresh mint, white rum, sugar, zesty lime, and cooling soda water. Play with the quantities to suit your taste.
- ½ lime, sliced into 4
- 8-10 fresh mint leaves
- 1 tsp sugar
- 1 oz white rum

1. Muddle the lime juice, sugar and mint leaves in a small jug, crushing the mint as you go – you can use the end of a rolling pin for this. Pour into a tall glass and add a handful of ice.
2. Pour over the rum, stirring with a long-handled spoon. Top up with soda water, garnish with mint and serve.
