MOJITO

1. Mojito Mojito translates as “a little soul” and is famed for its refreshing qualities. In Rioja we muddle fresh lime, sugar and mint, load it with Bacardi White Rum and add a dash of soda. Delicious! 2. Fruit Mojito (Strawberry or Raspberry) Let us add a little fruit to your favourite cocktail, strawberry or raspberry anyone? 3. Brazilian Mojito The mojito takes a trip south! Cachaça replaces the rum in the legendary Cuban favourite for something a little different. 4. Daiquiri Pre- revolutionary Havana – casinos, yachts and movie stars. Step back in time and gracefully sip this decadent classic Cuban cocktail. The base is Bacardi white rum, enhanced with lime juice and sugar syrup. 5. Fruit Daiquiri (Strawberry or Raspberry) If you fancy a fruity twist why not add strawberry or raspberry? 6. Tequila Sunrise A large measure of tequila, orange juice and a drizzle of grenadine (pomegranate) syrup. 7. Margarita Tequila, fresh lime juice and orange liquor. Actress Marjorie King was supposedly the inspiration for this world-famous cocktail when she visited a restaurant (Rancho La Gloria) near Tijuana, Mexico in 1948. Add Raspberry / Strawberry / Passion Fruit 7.25 8. Caipirinha The perfect blend of cachaça, fresh lime and sugar whipped over crushed ice and poured straight into your glass. Unique and refreshing. 9. Bramble A perfectly balanced drink from 1980’s London. Gordons gin, lemon and sugar served over crushed ice with a drizzle of crème de mure. 10. Cuba Libre Invented in a Cuban bar in 1900, this drink was used as a toast during the Spanish-American war. The name translates as “Free Cuba”; in Cuban we use Bacardi White rum, fresh lime and top with Pepsi Cola. 11. Espresso Martini Vodka, Kahlua, Vanilla and a shot of freshly drawn espresso.
