Mojito Martini

Shape up by Anthony Tripp

This summer, the mojito seemed to be the most talked about brew building it’s rounds on the home brew party path. I just tried a mojito for the first time and was bowled over at how much I loved it. I would have plotting that all that mint would make the drink taste like toothpaste but it’s in fact quite refreshing.

Putting mint foliage in a glass and crushing them sounds more like a touch that a gardener would do to kill weeds. But after you mix those crushed mint foliage with sugar, lime juice and rum you can tell the gardener to take a hike. This way there will be more mojito for you.

I loved my first mojito so much that I unbendable to conduct experiment with some of the variations too. It seems like the simplest way to add uncommon flavors to a mojito is to use flavored rums. The rum diligence has taken its cue from the vodka makers of the world and now offers all types of new and appealing flavors. Take Bacardi Rums for model. If you top bolt from the blue physically to use only Bacardi (not a terrible limit), you’d still have lots of varieties to point out from. There’s Limon, Razz, Bacardi O, Bacardi 8, Grand Melon, Huge Apple and I’m sure they’re doing promote investigate on a bunch of new flavors as you sit here and read this.

When you go out to a bar, they’re ordinarily stocked with all these newest and greatest flavors but it might be impractical for a home mixologist to buy more than a few varieties. I’m sure using any of those would taste fantastic but who wants to spend all that money on a home bar. If you’re having a huge party, then sure that makes sense. But for fixed home employment it’s doubtless best to try just one at a time and make sure you like them. I chose Bacardi Limon. All likes lemony flavored alcohol so it made sense.

And I also unbendable to go the martini route. It seems like martinis are made from just about no matter what thing now a days. So why not try a Mojito Martini?

Embellishment with some fresh mint foliage. And don’t fish the used mint foliage out of the brew shaker for the embellishment.

The mojito is so versatile that even the Mojito Martini has a few variations as well. A fantastic way to add a touch of class is to add a spatter of Grand Mariner. This is a called a Grand Mojito Martini and it truly does taste grand.

The mojito is a fantastic summertime drink that can add a modest global zest to any of your brew parties. If you’re the type of host that goes that extra mile for his or her guests, then why not plant some mint in your herb backyard in the jump. It’s an simple plant to grow and it’ll help you serve the freshest Mojitos, Mojito Martinis and Grand Mojitos Martinis and your guests will truly be thankful for it.
