Anyone for Cocktails?

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
  • Soda
  • Ice
  • Extra Mint
  1. Add the sugar and 60ml of boiling water to a pan, simmer for 1 minute or until dissolved, then cool
  2. Muddle in a cocktail shaker with the cucumber, mint, juice and rum
  3. Strain into a glass, add ice and top with soda and mint.
  4. Sit back and enjoy!
