How To Make A Mojito

This classic Caribbean Mojito cocktail recipe will make you feel as if you were right there relaxing on the beach. Before we start I would recommend using the freshest ingredients in order to truly bring out all the flavors. You will need a couple of limes, turbinado sugar, fresh mint, simple syrup, crushed ice, rum, and carbonated water. We also suggest you use the simple syrup instead of the turbinado sugar because the sugar doesn’t dissolve completely. First you will want to muddle the turbinado sugar or simple syrup (choose your preference), mint and limes together in your rocks glass. Put in your crush ice and stir. Finally add two shots or a 12 count of rum and carbonated water. Stir and garnish with some more mint. Chef Mark gives great insight on how to make a great tasting Mojito. For more great cooking demonstration videos, subscribe to the LearnToCookOnline YouTube channel.
