On June 23, 24 and 25, the city will live to the rhythm of Cuba, Salsa and especially Mojito.

Mojito recipe by Club Farret

Ingredients for each glass

  • 8 mint leaves

  • 1 half lime

  • Ice cubes

  • 4cl of white rum

  • 2cl of cane sugar

  • sparkling water


Step 1: prepare the ice cream

To crush your ice cubes, place them in a cloth and close it. Using a rolling pin, crush the ice cream.

Step 2: add the mint leaves to each glass

Never cut your mint leaves so as not to lose their taste and not to interfere with tasting (mint pieces could clog the straw). Place the mint leaves at the bottom of the glass.

Step 3: prepare the lime

Cut the lime into 6 equal sized pieces then add them to the glass.

Step 4: add the cane sugar

Add 2 cl of cane sugar. Opt for liquid sugar to avoid feeling sugar crystals when tasting.

Step 5: crush the contents of the glass

Crush the contents of the glass. Take care to check that the mint remains at the bottom of the glass and that the lemon and cane sugar cover it so as not to damage it.

Step 6: add the crushed ice

Add the ice, leaving space for the rum and soda water.

Step 7: complete with rum and sparkling water

Step 8: mix the ingredients

Finally, mix all the ingredients. Serve with two straws, one for stirring and the other for sipping! Alcohol abuse is dangerous for your health, consume in moderation.
