    Default Ladies & Gentlemen - It Is Moojito Time

    Hundred degrees at or near for more than a week? Big fat cigar this afternoon? That only leaves the Moojito Classico...

    Into a large glass add half a lime cut in four pieces atop 10-12 mint leaves lightly rustled.

    Muddle gently but firmly to bust open the lime and slightly damage the mint leaves but not enough to rip the leaves into pieces or to get lime peel bitterness released. Top with 1.5T to 2T of simple syrup and a splash of club soda; stir gently leaving mint on the bottom.

    Fill glass to the top with crushed ice.

    Add 1.5 ounces of light rum and stir gently.

    Retop with ice and fill to the top with club soda; whack a nice sprig of mint to open up the aroma and top as a garnish.

    The Moojito Classico:


    Sip slowly through the ice and find, as it melts, the entire glass remains light and refreshing - never a hint of anything except cool lime and a hint of mint.

    With the ensuing 100 degree weather approaching I will establish myself in my air conditioned bedroom with a couple of good books, my cat and never ending pitchers of various liquids, adding the Moojito to the list of imbibing fluids to keep cool and hydrated by. I will see the day either early AM or late PM and avoid any sunlight that can damage my Draculian pallor.

    They are slow to make but, fortunately, they are slower to sip. And it's never too hot for a mojito or the Moojito Classico.

    Thang you vurry mush.

    If you cannot mix and drink a Moojito at least look at the photo.

    In my drinking days, as with beer, I'd consider a Moojito a "non-alcoholic" beverage.....

    Yes, done right, neither bite nor sweet or even a hint of alcohol. Getting it right is like sliding down a razorblade.

    I Love Mojito's. I make them all the time when in the triple digits. We've been in heat-wave season for the past 2-3 weeks with no end in sight. 110 - 115F with humidity levels between 2 and 5 %

    Only a couple of days above 100 here so far. I better get my winter coats out. I need some good hot chocolate recipes.
