El Pequeño’s Mojito | Cocktail Party

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.

Game Changer

This is a game changer. When you're at the liquor store, thinking, "Yeah, ok fine what does Ancho Reyes liquor get me?" you open the app, look up Chile liquor and see that it gets you like 11 new cocktails. This is addictive, and indeed worth the price. We're having a blast under quarantine. While some of the ingredients are kind of anonymous, the icons look like the Campari bottle, and the descriptions often tell you if Campari will work or if you need Aperol. If you <3 cocktails, get this.
