Vanilla Old Cuban
Smooth, and herby, this cocktail is like a fizzy version of a mojito, with the sweetness & vanilla flavor of the syrup accentuating the characteristics of the rum.
6 Fresh Mint Leaves
1 1/4oz White Rum (we used Bacardi)
1/4oz Lime Juice
1/2oz Vanilla Simple Syrup
Garnish: 1 Mint Leaf & Thin Lime Wheel
- Combine the rum, lime juice, mint leaves & simple syrup in a mixing glass. Gently press the mint against the bottom of the glass with a muddler. Don’t bash it, you’re just looking to extract the oils.
- Add ice & shake to chill & combine.
- Double-strain the rum mixture into a wine glass.
- Top with the prosecco.
- Garnish with the mint leaf & lime wheel. Serve.
