This weekend me and Anna went to the South End Open Market. While we were there for the antiques and vintage finds, I couldn’t help but stop by all the food and flower stands. Being the airheads that me and Anna are, we brought only $7 in cash for both of us. We drooled over everything and eventually wisely chose to spend our savings on a brownie and fresh mint in a pot. Obviously I got laughed for wanting mint in a pot. No one will be laughing when it grows big enough for me to use it for making mojitos. Mojitos are amazing when made with freshly crushed mint. My mum grows mint every summer in her garden for just this sole purpose. Don’t feel like growing your own mint? Get some fresh bunches from a local farmer’s market or grocery store. Having said that, doesn’t it sounds uber cool when you say that you grown your own mint to make mojitos?
Mojito Recipe: 2 oz of white rum, 1 oz lime juice, 1 1/2 teaspoon of sugar, bunch of fresh mint, club soda and crushed ice
Add the sugar, mint and lime juice into a highball glass with a thick base. Crush the mint in the glass with a muddler.
Add the rum and fill the glass with crushed ice.
Top with club soda and stir
Enjoy knowing that it is summertime!
