Elderflower Mojito

This mojito recipe substitutes elderflower syrup for the typical simple syrup.  The elderflower subtly accentuates the fresh, herby characteristics of the spearmint without stealing center stage itself.

Ingredients:                       Makes 1 Cocktail
12 Fresh Mint Leaves
1/2oz Lime Juice
1/2oz Elderflower Syrup
2oz White Rum (we used Bacardi)
2oz Club Soda

Garnish: Mint Sprig

Directions:

  1. Gently press together the mint leaves, lime juice & elderflower syrup. You’re looking to bruise the mint and extract its oils, not beat it to a pulp.
  2. Shake this mixture with the rum & ice, then strain into a tall glass with fresh ice.
  3. Garnish with the mint sprig. Top with the soda & serve.
