Mojito Fever! Mojito Fever!
    Mojito
 

Brigitte Bardot, Ernest Hemingway and Marlene Dietrich had the right idea when they made no secret of their love for the Mojito. Made from simple ingredients like mint and limes, with a healthy dash of Angostura and a double measure of the finest white rum it is infinitely refreshing and outrageously sexy. The Mojito still remains a classic and is one of the most requested drinks in London’s style bars.

Don’t be scared about making Mojitos – half of the fun comes from bashing and smashing the mint, sugar and limes together at the bottom of the glass, releasing the pungent oils and juices. And there’s no need to rush out and pick up a professional muddler – the end of a rolling pin, a pestle or a small wooden spoon will do just fine. The idea is to crush all of the ingredients together, then add the crushed ice, drizzle over the rum and splash with Angostura. Follow the recipe below and you can’t go wrong. If you’re feeling extra specially daring, try replacing the mint and the lime for a handful of basil and 5 fresh strawberries.
