  1. Lightly MUDDLE mint in base of glass (just to bruise)

  1. Choose high-quality ingredients: Use fresh mint leaves, limes, and a good quality white rum for the best flavor.
  2. Muddle the mint gently: Be sure not to over-muddle the mint leaves to avoid releasing a bitter taste. Lightly press and twist to release the oils and aroma.

  4. Use a simple syrup: Make your own simple syrup by dissolving equal parts sugar and water. This will help sweeten the cocktail evenly.
  5. Choose the right glassware: Serve your French Mojito in a tall glass, like a Collins or highball glass, to showcase its vibrant colors and layers.
  6. Add crushed ice: Filling the glass with crushed ice will keep your cocktail nicely chilled and prevent watering down too quickly.
  7. Garnish with a lime wheel and mint sprig: The final touches of a lime wheel and fresh mint sprig will add an elegant and aromatic touch to your French Mojito.
