Drink of the Week: Lemon Mint Fizz

This recipe is a more refined version to the traditional Mojito; one that does away with all those annoying pieces of mint leaves that just make the whole cocktail-drinking experience a hassle. Here's how you make this equally refreshing cocktail:

Create a Lemon-Mint Syrup:

In a saucepan simmer 1/4 cup of white sugar, 1/4 cup of fresh lemon juice, two tablespoons of water, some lemon rind, and ten mint leaves. After fifteen minutes, turn the heat off and leave the syrup to rest for another fifteen minutes. Once cooled, run the liquid through a sieve to remove all the leaves. Once cooled and sieved, you may then use the syrup for the cocktail.


In a glass, combine 

  • two tablespoons of the Lemon Mint Syrup
  • a shot of Dark Rum
  • 3 ice cubes
  • fill to the brim with some club soda
