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
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.
