Making Mojitos

Today I thought I'd let you in on how I make my favourite cocktail at home! I am a sucker for any kind of cocktail but I love mojitos, especially with some passionfruit added. 

You can pretty much make these however you'd like. I've done it in various different ways with various different utensils... on our first attempt, our cocktail shaker was the bottle from my Blend Active Blender. Things have got a little more classy since then & I purchased this copper cocktail shaker from Sainsburys. 

I'm also not very precise on measurements either (Good job on the recipe post G, It's going well...) I just do it to taste! But here's what you'll need for your at home mojitos!

White Rum 
Soda Water
Fresh Mint Leaves
Agave Nectar (Or sugar, but I prefer the syrup as it dissolves quickly)
& passionfruit if you want to change it up a bit. 

Throw your mint, lime juice (& the rest of the lime, why not ey?) white rum and your sugar/syrup into a cocktail shaker and give it a good old shake. Pour it equally into your glasses then top up with soda water. Ideally have your glass filled with crush ice & some mint leaves, but that's not essential! 
As you can probably tell, it's pretty much trial and error every time! I've had some that taste heavenly & some that don't taste of much. Either way, they're so much fun to make with friends, so pop to the shops, grab the ingredients and you're good to go for a girls night in!
