VIVA LA REVOLUCIÓN: RUM MEETS RASPBERRY HIMBEERMOJITO
Mojito? This sugary crushed-ice-lime-dishwater for brainless boozing? Whoa – hold it!
You speak of the most famous Cuban Cocktail, my dear. And, with the right temperature and ingredients, it can be a magnificently refreshing drink. Best of all, it’s pretty damn simple to make. Our Raspberry Mojito comes with a fruity freshness that takes the edge off the alcohol. The flowery rum carries the berries nicely forward. And the sweet and tart combination of raspberry and mint is definitely a summer classic.
30ml of FfB Raspberry Spirit | 30ml of Havana 3 | 20ml of fresh lime juice | 2 barspoons of (white!) sugar | 2 sprigs of fresh mint| 60-80ml of Soda
Preparation: Put lime juice and sugar in a chilled highball glass. Give it a first good stir. “Activate” the mint: Place the sprigs in the palm of one hand and smack it with your opposite hand. Add to the glass and stir until the sugar is completely dissolved. Add the Raspberry Spirit and rum. Stir again and leave to rest for a few seconds. Fill with ice cubes and soda.
Glass: highball glass | Deco: a sprig of mint
