Take your straight glass and fill roughly half full with crushed ice. Cubed ice can be used as an alternative but we find crushed ice gives the best results.
Take around 8 fresh mint leaves. In the palm of your hand give these a little slap or rub. This will bring fantastic oils to the surface of the leaf. Now add these to your glass with ice.
Take your rum of choice, traditionally White Rum or Rum Blanco is used in the Mojito but other versions of the Mojito use Spiced, Golden, and sometimes Dark rum.
Now add a 50ml measure to the glass. Take your Panache of choice, see below our highly recommended flavours for Mojitos. Now add 10ml to your glass. Remember your Panache bottle cap is exactly 10ml.
Add the juice of one lime, roughly 30ml to your glass. Use a Mexican elbow to juice your fresh limes. Now take a bar spoon and give the contents of the glass a really good churn.
Top the rest of your glass with crushed ice. Once this is done take soda water and add this to your glass.
Finally, Garnish your drink with a mint sprig and lime wedge
