Bacardi Party (How to make Cuba Libre's and Mojito's)

So today’s post is a slight diversion from my usual food related musings. However, there are still recipes, although on this occasion they are of the alcoholic variety. My friend Emma won a Bacardi hosted ‘Mojito’s at Mine’ competition, and I was lucky enough to bag an invite. We were provided with cocktail tuition, and plenty of Bacardi, all served up behind a makeshift bar. I can now make a mojito whilst blindfolded, an invaluable skill I’m sure you’ll agree. Thanks to Emma and the Bacardi girls.

50ml Bacardi (Rum)
150ml coca cola
½ lime
Cubed Ice
  1. Half fill a highball glass with ice.
  2. Squeeze in the juice of half a lime and drop the wedge into the glass.
  3. Top with more ice, the rum and the coca cola.

50ml Bacardi (Rum)
½ lime
2 tsp caster sugar
12 mint leaves
dash of soda water
Crushed Ice
  1. Slap the mint leaves against your hand to release the flavour, then rub them around the edge of a tall glass, then drop them into the glass.
  2. Pour over the juice of half a lime and the caster sugar, and half fill the glass with crushed ice. Churn with a long spoon to dissolve the sugar.
  3. Fill the glass with more ice, add the rum, a dash of soda and swizzle the long spoon to mix everything together. Garnish with mint
