This Homemade Classic Mojito is a refreshing drink enjoyed best on a hot summer eve.
Uh, the week we’ve had! I feel like downing one of these guys straight down to recompose! I’ve been in the car the past 4 days just driving from home to my parents, back home, to the airport, to a wedding in Croatia and back home. Man, I’m sick of the car, and waiting on the border for 45 minutes was pure torture while driving coffee-less and sleepless and quite hangover. The wedding was epic, the next day not quite so much.
So, Mitja and I are not really big on drinks. We generally don’t consume soft drinks, but will occasionally have a beer or a glass of wine. Mostly, we drink plain water. The older we get, the more difficult it is to tolerate alcohol, and the easier we get drunk and have a hangover the next day.
We also don’t drink fruit drinks (unless a smoothie as a meal), but sometimes, just from time to time on a special day, we’ll splurge on something fancy. Like this Homemade Classic Mojito with peppermint, lime, white rum, just a bit of sugar and soda water. Simple, quick and classic.
I’ve never even really drank a mojito, until our holidays to Tenerife, Spain last year (that was epic!), and lately, I’ve been having a craving, so I splurged and bought some Bacardi White Rum just for the sole purpose of making myself a mojito. Because it’s summer, I miss holidays, and I wanted to.
This Homemade Classic Mojito is for all of us out there that have no clue how a fancy cocktail is made, have no special cocktail equipment and really want a decent drink.
