For anyone else who finds Pimms a bit on the sweet side, the lovely people over at Cocktailmaker in Ley Hill have sent in a recipe for a Mojito to set your tastebuds tingling. I’m putting it on my diet sheet immediately because I reckon it covers at least one of my Five-a-Day!
Cucumber Mojito (serves 1)
- 1oz Caster Sugar
- 3oz Cucumber
- Handful of Mint Leaves
- 60ml Fresh Lime Juice
- 50ml White rum
- Extra Mint
- Add the sugar and 60ml of boiling water to a pan, simmer for 1 minute or until dissolved, then cool
- Muddle in a cocktail shaker with the cucumber, mint, juice and rum
- Strain into a glass, add ice and top with soda and mint.
- Sit back and enjoy!
