Tuesday Treat

Old Cuban Cocktail (Serves 1)

This cocktail is a fantastic twist on the classic Mojito. With the addition of Prosecco it has a lighter, more elegant finish. Perfect on a summer evening…

25ml sugar syrup

½ a lime, juiced

70ml dark rum, such as Havana

1 sprig fresh mint, leaves picked

Angostura bitters

A handful of ice cubes

50ml Prosecco

  1. Place the mint leaves in a cocktail shaker and lightly bash with the back of a wooden spoon. Add the sugar syrup, lime juice, rum and a couple of dashes of Angostura bitters plus the ice cubes. Shake for about 15 seconds until the shaker is cold.
  2. Strain into a chilled glass and top with the Prosecco… Enjoy!
