There are a lot of different wild cocktails you could make – in fact, you could write a book on it – however, this Water mint & Sorrel Mojito is one of my favourites. I initially love mojitos and was delighted when I came up with this wild mojito recipe, I’ve not met a single person who hasn’t enjoyed this drink.
Ingredients – per person:
- 2 shots Bacardi (or other white rum)
- 1 shot birch sap syrup (or sugar syrup)
- 8 water mint leaves (or regular mint leaves)
- 15 lambs sorrel leaves (or 30 wood sorrel – or a wedge of lime)
- 100ml soda water
- Crushed ice
- Optional extras (other mints, douglas fir or other firs)
Method for our Water mint & Sorrel Mojito Recipe :
- Put the birch sap syrup and sorrel leaves in a glass, with a muddler (or the end of something solid – like a rolling pin) squish the sorrel leaves into the syrup – you’ll more than likely make the leaves into a bit of a mush to release the flavour, for 30 secs.
- Add the mint leaves and push down another 5 times to open up the flavour in them.
- Pour in your white rum and stir
- Fill the rest of the glass with crushed ice and pour the soda water into the top of the glass
- Use a long spoon to stir the mixture and infuse the flavours throughout.
- Serve with a garnish of sorrel leaf and water mint leaf
