Eco-Mojito (serves 1)
2 ounces Organic Rum*
10-12 organic Mint Sprigs
1 ounce Organic Simple Syrup
1 tsp. organic sugar
1/3 cup soda water
Mint Sprig and lime wheel for garnish
Tools Needed: Cocktail Shaker, Muddler
First, prepare the Organic Simple Syrup: Pour 1/3 cup of water and 1/3 cup of Organic Sugar into a sauce pan. Bring to a boil, stirring continuously. Once the sugar has dissolved, remove from heat and let cool.
To make the Eco-Mojito: Slice the lime into quarter pieces. Place 6 quarters of lime, 1 tsp. of granulated organic sugar and mint sprigs (break the mint into pieces first to release the most flavor) into the cocktail shaker. Muddle the ingredients together very well. Add approx. 1 cup of ice to the shaker. Pour 1 ounce organic simple syrup and 2 ounces of Organic Rum over the ice. Cover and Shake Well. Pour all of the contents into a tall glass. Top off with soda water.
Garnish with a lime wheel, mint sprig and serve with a straw.
Health Benefits: Organic mint has a natural calming effect and relieving stress is great for everyone’s health! Additionally, mint is wonderful for digestion and also contains Vitamin A, Vitamin C and manganese.
*Organic Rum: It is difficult to find producers of truly organic rum, but Crusoe Rum is an outstanding rum made with organic molasses and pure, fair-trade sugarcane. In addition, for every bottle sold, 1 month of clean water is provided to people in need around the world! For more on Crusoe Rum, click here.
Serving Suggestions: The flavor of mint and this delicious mojito is wonderful whether your are in the tropics, or just dreaming of being there! Guests will want more than one, so stock up on mint and get a friend to help you muddle (your arms will get a nice workout if you are making for a group)!
Eco-Mojito Alternative: Want to step up the antioxidant level of this cocktail and add a little extra flavor? Try the Blueberry Eco-Mojito! To make, just add 1/4 cup of blueberries to the cocktail muddler after you have muddled the mint, sugar and lime together. Muddle the blueberries enough to release the juice and break apart the blueberries. Then, continue with the recipe above. Cheers!
