July 11 – National Mojito Day

With the cooling mint and burst of lime, the Mojito is a cocktail mint to be celebrated under the summer sun. Spice things up by substituting rum for the original chile liqueur, Ancho Reyes, created from ancho and poblano chiles in Puebla, Mexico.


2 parts Ancho Reyes

1 part fresh lime juice

½ part simple syrup (1:1)

7-9 leaves of fresh mint

3 lime wedges

Soda water

Add mint, lime wedges and simple syrup into a shaker tin. Lightly smash the ingredients together. Add Ancho Reyes, lime juice and ice and shake. Strain all contents into a double rocks glass. Garnish with a mint sprig and lime wheel.
