Let’s start with the name. Siarp Mojito’s. It’s Justin’s recipe and of course, his business is called “Siarp” which is Welsh for “Sharp”. This seems quite appropriate as these Mojitos are pretty sharp, making them the perfect refreshing drink in this nice hot, sunny weather!
We’re not the fastest at making our drinks, and pretty much make them one at a time. So here’s the recipe for one Siarp Mojito! You’ll need a decent sized glass like the ones pictured.
- 1 large (or 1.5 small) lime(s)
- 1 sprig of mint
- 3 shots of Bacardi
- 1 measure of sugar syrup
- Soda water to top up
- Ice (of course!) – Crushed, if you can.
Fill the glass two-thirds high with crushed ice.Slice the limes into quarters and put into a mixer and squash them up good until most if not all of the juice is freed. We use a wooden cocktail muddler. Empty into the glass with the ice. Take the muddler and also crush the mint sprig. This will allow some extra flavour to be released from the stem and the leaves. Pop this into the glass too. Add the three shots of Bacardi and the shot of sugar syrup and give it a good stir. Top up with soda water and give another brief stir. Enjoy.
We also do, from time to time, have what is known as a “Turbo Siarp Mojito“! This substitutes the soda water for Prosecco. This one should come with a warning.Another popular one that goes well with fizz is the Strawbery Mojito. Substitute half a lime for two mid-sized strawberries and change the sugar syrup for grenadine and you’re good to go!
