One of the big drinks in connection with New Year here in Denmark is apparently Mojito, as you buy limes fruits and mint leaves in all Danish supermarkets with respect for them shelf. So right after New Year you can buy all the leftovers of mint plants/bunches of mints and limes, as January is the month of dieting and fitness upon a calorie rich month of December full of food, alcohol and sweets.

Otherwise the Mojito is more of summer cocktail for me due to it´s coolness of fresh mint leaves and plenty of ice cubes and fresh flavour notes from the mashed lime.

So after I have been sweating seriously in rowing machine, I will go home and make myself a Mojito as a more funny way of getting my much needed C-vitamins !!!

Adding the sugar into the lime and mint leaves, before mashing everything together is giving a better dissolution of the sugar and better sweetness in my opinion compared to added the sugar after the mashing process.

Mojito: - 1 serving
  • ½ lime - cut in 4 halves
  • 12 mint leaves
  • 4 teaspoon of sugar
  • 5 cl rum
  • ice cubes
  • sparkling water / club soda
  1. Place the lime halves, mint leaves and sugar in a high-ball glass.
  2. Mash it well together mortar.
  3. Add in the rum.
  4. Fill the glass with ice cubes.
  5. Top with sparkling water / club soda.
  6. Place a straw in the mojito.

You can buy a ready-to-use Mojito mix, where you "only" need to add in the rum and ice cubes, before you have a ready-to-drink mojito such as the Funkin drink mixes. You should "only" use such a mix, if you like to drink a too sweet and too acid mojito without to much lime/mint flavour profile. If you like to drink a less sweet and more flavourful Mojito, I will strongly recommend to make your own mojito and stay very clear of the Funkin drink mix. One Funkin drink mix cost approx 1.32 €/pack.
