Mojito

A classic cocktail from Cuba that has distinct mint and lime flavours

70 ml Celebracion Mojito pre-mixed cocktail
50 ml Ronsin (non-alcoholic rum)
70 ml sparkling water
1/4 lime - sliced
3 sprigs of mint
Crushed ice

Put the Mojito cocktail and sliced lime into a glass and mash together (only 3-4 hard crushes). Remove the leaves from 2 mint sprigs and place in the palm of your hand.  Slap with the other hand to release the oils and aroma and add to the cocktail.  Add the Ronsin and sparkling water and then fill with crushed ice.  Stir.  Garnish with the other mint sprig and maybe a slice of lime.

You may need to experiment with the amount of lime you crush into the cocktail.  The pre-mix has a distinct lime flavour and too much lime may obscure the refreshing mint flavour.

This recipe make a glass (250 ml) of cocktail.
