Cocktail trend: mojitos with a twist
(NC) - What started as a trend in cities like New York and London with bartenders experimenting with interesting combinations of spirits, exotic fruits, vegetables, herbs and spices, is now alive and well in Canada.
"Twisting classic cocktails is the big hit of this summer. The trendsetting mojito which was the 'must-have' cocktail last year is having a renaissance as bartenders across the country are creating new mixes like muddled jalapeno and watermelon mojitos," says MacMillan.
A variety of mojito recipes can be found online at www.bacardimojito.ca.
Gather mint and rub around the rim of a highball glass. Drop mint in glass. Drop jalapeno and lime into glass. Add 2 tsp sugar and muddle with pestle. Top with ice, add 1 1/2 oz. Bacardi Superior Rum and top with watermelon juice. Stir well and garnish with a jalapeno slice, watermelon slice and sprig of mint.
