Rum Drink(s)

I should drink more rum.  Spotted a while back on BuzzFeed, click here for the list.  I think number 8 (below) may be my favorite. Via Supergolden Bakes

Pink Mojito
Serves 1 
  • 6 mint leaves plus extra sprigs to decorate 
  • 1/2 lime, cut into wedges 
  • 2 tsp sugar (simple) syrup (I used Monin) 
  • 3 raspberries 
  • 1 oz white rum 
  • 1 tbsp cherry brandy (or Chambord) 
  • tonic water to top up (or use soda water) 
  1. Muddle the mint leaves, raspberries and sugar syrup in a highball glass – try to extract as much juice and flavor as possible. 
  2. Add plenty of ice – crushed preferably. Pour the rum and cherry brandy over the ice and stir well. 
  3. Top up with tonic water, decorate with a mint sprig and serve.
