This tart yet surprisingly sweet mix is a delicious alternative to the traditional mojito
Ingredients (Serves 1)
3 lime wedges
8 fresh mint leaves, plus extra sprigs to serve
3-4 tsp brown sugar
3 tsp Belvoir Gooseberry and Mint cordial
3 fresh gooseberries, plus extra to serve
3 tbsp Golden Cuban rum
Muddle together the lime wedges, mint, sugar, Gooseberry and Mint cordial and 3 gooseberries in a hi-ball tumbler, then add half the rum and pack with plenty of crushed ice.
Float the rest of the rum on top then garnish with a few extra gooseberries and a sprig of fresh mint. To mix for serving from a pitcher, use 4 times the ingredients. Make as fresh as possible to stop the mint turning brown.
