Bahama Bob's Ultimate Mojito

     I was fooling around with an idea I had for an ultimate mojito in the Rum Lab the other day, when I hit upon this recipe.   I was looking for a premium mojito rather than another flavored one, so here is what came out of the efforts.

    First of all I had to choose a rum that fit the balance of the cocktail.  It turned out to be from my friends at Diplomatico that provided the one that fit the profile of this cocktail.  Next I needed to add a different twist to the mix so I replaced the club soda with another bubbly, Prosecco Italian Champagne, and of course a touch of St. Germain just as a finishing touch. 

Bahama Bob's Ultimate Mojito

  • 2 oz. Diplomatico Blanco Rum
  • 1 1/2 oz. Depaz Cane Syrup
  • Juice of 1/2  Lime
  • 1/2  Bar Spoon of St. Germain
  • Prosecco Champagne
  • 7 to 10 Fresh Mint Leaves
Place the lime juice, cane syrup, and mint leaves into a  12 oz. glass and muddle with a smooth wood muddler very lightly, fill glass with ice, add the rum and St Germain and shake until chilled. Top the glass with Prosecco Italian Champagne and garnish with a lime wheel and a mint sprig.

     This is a great version for the person that has become bored with the traditional Mojito.  ;o)
