El Pequeño’s Mojito

El Pequeño’s Mojito

El Pequeño Bar in Montreal serves this twist on a Mojito, a classic intensified by the inclusion of mint syrup. Homemade mint syrup is best – but if using commercial mint syrup, try to find one without green dye added.

Ingredients

Instructions

Gently muddle the mint at the bottom of a tall glass along with the syrup, taking care not to tear any little pieces from the mint. Add the rum and lime juice, add some crushed ice, and top with the sparkling water. Add more crushed ice to fill the glass, and garnish with lime wheels and more fresh mint.

This app ROCKS!!!

I've used a number of mix drink apps, and this one is by FAR the BEST! I've made a couple dozen drinks so far, and they're delicious. It suits my quality wants while (more importantly) suiting my inherent laziness. You put in what you have on hand, and it automatically lists all the drinks you can make! There's info on all the ingredients, which is pretty neat to learn some backstory. What I truly like is I can click an ingredient and it shows how many more drinks I can make. It's pretty fun picking up a new item and seeing 8 new drinks to try. There's a setting on the iPad that locks the app on so people can switch on the mixing app without letting anyone out of it, so I leave it by the bar and people can use it without worry of people snooping around. ;) The combination of all the drinks and this app that makes searching for, and making a drink, easy peezy lemon squeezey, and gives a real feeling of sophistication.
