sipping marvelous mojitos on a hot summer day – could anything be better?

we have a ton of lemon balm growing, so i used this in a variation on the traditional mint.

lemon balm mojitos

(makes 2)
in a cocktail shaker, combine:

1 Tbsp sugar
6 lemon balm leaves
juice from 2 limes

muddle them up until the leaves are bruised, but not in shreds


3 oz white rum
ice cubes to fill

shake and strain into cocktail glasses. top up with tonic water and garnish with a few lemon balm leaves and (my personal favourite) a few frozen raspberries or strawberries or some slices of lime.

cin cin!
