Cocktails are a major weakness for me. They’re so tasty and interesting. A few weeks ago I shared with you my favourite, the Margarita. I’m also very fond of a Mojito, as is my boyfriend, so at the weekend I made us up a pitcher, and pretended it was a warm and sunny summer’s day, not freezing cold and raining!

This recipe makes 4 glasses. This recipe suits my tastes, but the great thing about making cocktails at home is you can tweak them to your own personal tastes. Like them sweet, add more sugar. Prefer sour, add a bit more lime juice. Taking it easy, a little less rum.


Soft brown sugar – 3 teaspoons

Mint leaves – from 3 sprigs (torn), plus extra for glasses

Lime juice – 2 limes

Ice – for shaker, jug, and glasses

White rum – 8 measure

Soda water – 1 pint/550ml

Equipment: Cocktail shaker, cocktail muddler, citrus juicer, jug, hi-ball glasses


  1. Put the sugar and mint leaves in the cocktail shaker and muddle.
  2. Juice the limes. Pour the juice into the cocktail shaker and muddle again.
  3. Add a couple of ice cubes and the rum into the cocktail shaker, put the lid on and shake well.
  4. Pour into the jug, add ice and pour in the soda water.
  5. Give it a quick stir and pour into glasses, decorate with a few mint sprigs.
