At The Beach Hut we add a twist of lemon to the classic mojito recipe to give it an even more citric kick.
Fresh mint leaves
25ml Golden Rum
25ml Lemon Vodka
1/2 tsp brown sugar
Muddle together the squeezed wedge of lime, vodka, rum and 1/2 teaspoon of brown sugar. Do this vigorously as you need the brown sugar to dissolve.
Place 4-5 mint leaves in your hands and clap to release the essential oils. Add this to the mix and continue to muddle.
Meanwhile, fill your glass with crushed ice, layering with more mint leaves as you go. Strain the muddles mix into the glass, top up with soda water and garnish with lemon wedge and mint.
