(Serves 1)

The mojito is a Cuban classic. This recipe is with a South African twist.

2 ½ tbsp Rooibos Syrup (see Rooibos Syrup recipe)

¹⁄³ cup white rum

2 to 3 lime wedges

a generous amount of mint leaves, without stalks

5 ice cubes, crushed

soda water


Place the Rooibos syrup, rum, lime wedges and mint in a tall, sturdy glass.
Crush the mixture with a muddler* or the back of wooden spoon.
Add the crushed ice and top up with soda water. Stir vigorously and serve immediately.

    * A muddler is a bartender’s tool, used to ‘muddle’ or make a mash of fruits, herbs, or spices in the bottom of a glass to release their flavor.
