Toffee Apple Mojito
This should help you get to the weekend...
More than a little twist on a standard Mojito and we can already hear the mixologists moaning - but we like it, we know loads of people that like it - so we're going to share!!!
Rating: We’d rate this as extremely easy to make
- 75ml 55 Above Toffee Vodka
- 75ml Apple Juice
- 1 Lime
- 12 Mint Leaves
- 1 Apple
Ideally you would have 2 tall glasses (but we recommend simply using your favourite – we love a good quality glass and they aren’t all tall!), a sharp knife, a jigger, a muddler, chopping board and ice. Make sure you have a clear work area and don’t rush; good things are worth waiting for!
Step 1: Gently press 10 of the mint leaves in the tall glass
Use your muddler to gently press down on the leaves; you are wanting to extract the flavour but not mash/destroy the leaves – treat them well, they’ll add loads of flavour.
Step 2: Press your limes
In the second tall glass now use the muddler to press half your lime; for easy cut it into 3 or 4 segments. As with the mint don’t rush and don’t pulp the line. We want the juice and a little of the oils from the skin but not loads. Pour the juice into a measure, you are going to want around 20ml.
Step 3: Get ready to drink…
You should already have the mint & lime in your tall glass. Now add the 75ml of apple juice, add ice to fill your glass and finally add 75ml of Toffee 55 Vodka. Stir gently with a long spoon.
Garnishing: Add a wedge of lime, a mint leaf or two and thinly sliced apple. We say leave for a minute or two to let it settle a bit or just get stuck in.
As you work your way down the glass you’ll taste the apple, at first it’s 100% like the toffee apples we all had as kids – then you’ll get the lime and mint come through.
mouth-watering to share?
