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.
Garnish: Mint Sprig
- 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.
- Shake this mixture with the rum & ice, then strain into a tall glass with fresh ice.
- Garnish with the mint sprig. Top with the soda & serve.
