The mojito gets a Cascadian update with fresh mint and our Raspberry and Citrus Shrub. It’s refreshing and light, thanks to white rum and plenty of bubbles. You’ll want to sip this one in the Caribbean, but if you’re not on a tropical island at the moment, just close your eyes and imagine!
8 fresh mint leaves
1 oz. Raspberry and Citrus Shrub
2 oz. white rum
Mint leaf (garnish)
In a sturdy glass add mint and shrub. Using a muddler, crush the mint to release the mint oils. Do not strain the mixture. Fill glass almost to the top with ice and add white rum. Top with sparkling water. Stir, taste, and add more shrub if desired. Garnish with a mint leaf and a lime slice.
Note: chocolate mint is a great pairing.
