Happy Thirsty Thursday! 😉 This week went by in the blink of an eye…. Summer is just around the corner and so is patio season. 😉 I love a refreshing cocktail on a hot night. These mojitos are the perfect drink, I love using fresh herbs in my drinks. A classic mojito is made with rum and can be quite sweet, this recipe is more fresh and crisp. Mint is a great herb, it’s the perfect palate cleanser, it can be used as a breath freshener, is soothing on your stomach in cases of indigestion or inflammation and it also helps to promote digestion. Have I given you enough reasons to try it in your next cocktail………..;) This drink is sure to impress your guests at the next BBQ.
- 3 shots of Bombay Gin
- ½ shot of simple syrup
- 200 ml spakling water

- In a martini shaker, muddle your mint with the simple syrup, lime juice and half of the lime.
