Mojito

Mojito cocktail with rum and mint

We didn’t think we liked the Mojito the first few times we had it. It was watery, little smashed-up mint bits got stuck in our teeth – overall, a sad affair. It wasn’t until we had a properly-made Mojito that we understood the true magic of it.

Made right, the drink is strained to remove the muddled bits, and a new sprig of mint is added at the end for the drinker to bury their nose in. It’s heaven in a glass, man.

Ingredients

Instructions

Muddle the lime wedges, sugar, and mint leaves in a shaker until the sugar is dissolved. Add ice and rum, shake just a few times to mix, and strain into an ice-filled glass. Top with sparkling water, slap a sprig of mint and garnish the drink with it.

An awesome cocktail app with curated recipes

I'm shocked that there are no reviews listed for this app. I found it on reddit's cocktails forum. The drink list in this app is much shorter than in many of the other apps I've seen, but the quality and reliability of the recipes is much much higher. These are more like the drinks you would get at a good mixology bar instead of the drink equivalent of your aunt's jello fruit mold that people just "love." I much prefer a list of cocktails that are reliable, good and repeatable than a huge pile of garbage recipes. This app is great and delivers great, reliable cocktails.
