Sometimes when the weather is a little dreary and you've had a busy week, the best thing to do is to imagine you're holidaying somewhere tropical, with a cooling cocktail on hand. A mijoto is my holiday cocktail of choice, and here's how to make it!
1/2 lime, cut into pieces
3 tsp caster sugar
10-12 mint leaves
50 ml white rum (Bacardi)
1. In a medium size glass muddle lime pieces and caster sugar hard. I used a rolling pin end for muddling.
3. Add bacardi and crushed ice and stir well.
4. Top with soda water and more crushed ice.
So tell me, what's your favourite holiday cocktail?
