Spice up your summer cocktail experience with the Ginger Mojito. Sweet rum and sour lime go great with fresh mint and a spicy hint of ginger.
2 ginger slices
6 mint leaves
3 lime wedges
2 oz. Brugal Anejo Rum
Top with ginger ale
Mint leaves and ginger slice for garnish
In a mixing glass, place lime wedges, ginger slices and mint leaves. Press with a muddle to release the oils and juices. Add ice and pour in Brugal Anejo Rum. Shake to mix and chill, then pour into a glass. Add more ice and top with ginger ale. Finish with a garnish of a mint leaf and ginger slice on the rim.
Feeling like it needs more spice? Add more ginger slices or substitute ginger beer for the ginger ale.
Desire something a little on the sweeter side? Add a half ounce of simple syrup.
Using an aged rum like Brugal Anejo adds more flavour to your mojito than a white rum.
