Earlier this week we posted our Double Zee Pineapple Pepper Mojitotini. We couldn’t resist another mixing up another Mojito. It was a no-brainer, we already has a bunch of mint sprigs and no where to use them. Which reminds me – the Madtini Labs balcony herb garden is still not started. I’ll add it to the ‘To Do’ list for next week.
Another quick sprint over to the Bacardi site, and we spotted this beauty in the Mojito section: The Maple Mojito. We adjusted things for the cocktail glass and added a ‘tini’ to the end and we were in business.
Dear Bacardi, you had us at Maple. We are Canadian, it is my kryptonite, whether it appears in syrup, cookie or donut form.
- 1 1/2 oz Bacardi Rum
- 8-10 fresh mint leaves
- 1/2 lime, cut into small pieces
- 1 tbsp maple syrup
- 1 oz club soda
Rub the mint around the rim of the cocktail glass. Add the leaves to the glass. Squeeze the juice from half a lime and add that to the glass. Add a tablespoon of maple syrup. Muddle lightly to mix the flavours. Add a handful of crushed ice. Pour the rum over the ice and top with cub soda. Garnish with a sprig of mint.
