Heron Valley Apple Mojito

This is the hands down, best selling cocktail on the Heron Valley bar - easy to make, with no added sugar (the apple juice gives the cocktail natural sweetness) and completely delicious - you will end up making these constantly once you've got the knack!

Ingredients

50ml Mount Gay rum or good white rum if you prefer

10 fresh mint leaves

juice from 1/2 a lime and a wedge of lime for the glass

150ml naturally sweeter apple juice

Method

Muddle 6 mint leaves in the bottom of a good high ball glass then top up with plenty of ice.

In a Boston cocktail shaker, shake together the rum, apple juice, lime juice, 4 remaining mint leaves and 4 or 5 ice cubes. 

Strain the rum, apple juice, lime and mint into the highball glass, add a big slice or wedge of lime and a couple of mint leaves for decoration.

There you go - simple!
