  • OK lovely people, i'm gonna show you how to make the best classic Mojito, the most popular

  • cocktail on the planet. Very refreshing, very beautiful and very, very simple to make. So,

  • first up, lime. Give it a little roll, just to loosen the oils in the skin, you can start

  • to smell it and also those little capsules of lime juice inside. Take the end off of

  • the lime, like that. Take a nice, just over a centimeter thick, like this, and then cut

  • it into four. That goes into our glass, I want about seven or eight nice leaves of mint,

  • try and go for the smaller ones, they are obviously younger, they're more delicate,

  • more perfumed. Look at that, beautiful. What we can do, give a nice little spank. Everything

  • in life is better with a little spank. *wink* That goes into the glass. About one dessert

  • spoon, level of sugar. If it's a little sour add a little bit more sugar. Now I haven't

  • got a muddler, i'm just gonna use the end of a whisk but you could use a rolling pin,

  • or anything that's flat like that. And what I want to do is eight, nice, little squashes.

  • I've been in some not so good bars, were you see the bar tenders going duh duh duh duh

  • duh duh. It makes the white bitter part of the lime extract and it makes the bitterness

  • also come out of the leaves. Next up we want fifty ml of white rum. I'm just using a little

  • digestive glass like this. Let's say fifteen ice cubes is good. I'm just gonna get my little

  • tea towel like this, grab in the little corners. Smash it up. You can use a rolling pin if

  • you want, you can get all your aggression out. Think of your bank manager or the estate

  • agent and the taxes you pay every year. But it's gonna be alright because we're gonna

  • have a beautiful mojito. Come and have a look, this kinda blend is nice, I like that, I like

  • it a lot. So i'm only gonna fill that glass, three quarters OK? and then i'm just gonna

  • top it up. With a little soda water, just a little splash like that, no more. And then

  • use our spoon, and we just, almost like cooking when you're folding things through egg whites

  • and cream, just fold it and then top up with the ice. Garnish with a little mint and also,

  • give it another spank. Another important Italian bar man told me to do that. Always spank your

  • mint. So there you go guys, I hope you like that beautiful cocktail and don't forget you

  • can be creative with this of course you can. It's really nice with different types of mint,

  • I've done it with lemon thyme before which was really interesting. You can also do it

  • with basil. Beautiful little basil leaves. Purple basil, green basil. If you like it,

  • like it. If you want to share it in your social media put it everywhere we want people making

  • there own fresh cocktails just like with when i'm cooking. Also don't forget, go and have

  • a look at Food Tube, if you wanna see some food to go with this lovely recipe. But I

  • hope you like that! Until next time, cheers!
