Spiced Mojito

A cool, crisp, summery blend of rum, mint, lime and soda – the Spiced Mojito is a version of the classic Cuban cocktail with a subtle piquancy thanks to a base of Captain Morgan Original Spiced Gold.

Method

  • Mix

    Place 7 mint leaves into a Collins glass.

    Using a knife cut a lime in two on a chopping board and place in the drink.

    With a jigger, measure 25ml sugar syrup into the glass.

  • Grab a bite

    Get some grub in before or while you’re drinking – it slows alcohol absorption.
