An easy, fruity mojito given a simple twist with the unique flavour of Korean Omija Syrup.
- 4 fresh mint sprigs
- 2 fresh limes
- 2 tsp omija syrup
- 60ml (4 tsp) white rum
- 90ml (5 tbsp) soda water
- lots of ice
- Pick the leaves off 3 of the mint sprigs and drop them into the bottom of a large glass or cocktail shaker with 1 1/2 of the limes cut into wedges (set the rest aside for the garnish), the omija syrup and the rum.
- Muddle everything together with a muddler or the end of a rolling pin until the mint leaves and bruised and the lime wedges have given up all their juice.
- Fill a large glass 2/3 full with ice, the remaining lime half cut into wedges, and the remaining mint sprig.
- Strain the liquid in the cocktail shaker over the ice and top up with soda water. Stir to combine, and enjoy!
