I have a lemon obsession, it's one of my favourite fruits, it's beautiful to look at and you can do so much with them. My dream holiday is going to the Amalfi coast, one because it's the Amalfi Coast and two, because I will get to go lemon souvenir shopping, this is true.
I grow my own lemons and make my own limoncello, so when it was my birthday this year, I wanted to make something with my limoncello. This was a great cocktail. The limoncello just makes a mojito even better.
This is great party drink as you can make it directly into a jug to make the a large quantity, then pour into glasses and top up with soda water.
So if you love lemon flavoured cocktails, give this a go, it's very refreshing.
3 large mint leaves, plus more for garnish
30ml lime juice
15ml sugar syrup
30ml white rum
125ml soda water
Ice, for serving
Lime circle, to garnish
In a cocktail shaker, muddle the mint leaves with the lime juice and syrup.
Add the limoncello and rum and fill the cocktail shaker with ice. Shake until cold.
Fill a hurricane or highball glass with ice, then strain in the liquid. Top off the glass with soda water. Garnish with a lime circle additional mint leaves.
