Cucumber and Mint Mojito recipe

Mojitos are a wonderfully refreshing drink for the summer - and the addition of cucumber makes the drink smooth, flavourful and also helps to use up any cucumber gluts you may have.

Ingredients:

  • 1 lime
  • 2 sprigs mint
  • 2 tbsp. caster sugar
  • 2 slices cucumber
  • Ice
  • 4 tbsp. white rum
  • 115ml sparkling water

Directions:

  1. Slice the lime into quarters. Squeeze into a tall glass, then put the lime quarters into the glass. Add the mint and sugar and smush together with a spoon.

  2. Add the cucumber, sparkling water and rum and then top with ice, then stir with a long spoon. Serve.

Add more cucumber and mint if you prefer your mojitos to be more flavourful. Recipe serves one.
