Special Dedication – Our Episode Angel 

We dedicate this episode to Enrique L. Rios of New York City who was killed in the shootings at Club Pulse in Orlando, Florida.

Signature Cocktail 
Classic Bacardi Mojito
  • 2 parts BACARDÍ Superior rum
  • 4 lime wedges
  • 5 to 6 fresh mint leaves
  • 2 heaped tsp of caster sugar
  • 1 part soda water/club soda
  • Sprig of fresh mint to garnish

Gently press together the limes & sugar. Bruise the mint leaves by clapping them between your palms, rub them on the rim of the glass and drop them in. Next, half fill the glass with crushed ice, add the BACARDÍ Superior rum & stir. Top up with crushed ice, a splash of soda and a sprig of mint. I served mine in a mason jar with specially design mason jar cocktail covers with accompanying straws.
