Sipping Rhubarb Mint Mojitos in Muskoka

Summer Bliss on the Dock

Imagine this: You're lying on the dock, bare feet in the cool water of the lake, the sun is high and warm, the muffled sound of boats passing in the distance lilts in the breeze, and beside you sits the perfect summer cocktail: The Rhubarb Mint Mojito.

This cocktail’s not just a drink, it’s a ticket to a laid back afternoon where time slows and the worries of the day melt away. The bold bright tartness of rhubarb meets the fresh coolness of mint, a perfect pairing.

Instructions:

Rhubarb Mint Simple Syrup: Begin by combining in a small saucepan: chopped rhubarb, sugar, water and fresh mint. Get it to a boil over high heat, then reduce the heat to low, let it simmer for about 10-15 minutes, stir once in a while, and inhale that sweet, tart scent. Strain through a fine mesh sieve to separate the solids. Cool completely. It’s liquid sunshine for your cocktails!

How to make the Mojito: Put a few sprigs of mint in the bottom of a good sturdy rocks glass and gently muddle to release the oils. Fill to the brim with white rum, rhubarb mint simple syrup, lime juice and a top with soda water for fizz.

Garnish Galore: Peel a stick of rhubarb with a vegetable peeler to create fine ribbons. Curl into a whimsical spiral to add on top of the glass. or just add a stalk of rhubarb, as is! Garnish with a sprig of mint and a lime or lemon wedge. Finish with a zest of lime for extra zing.

Soooooo good!
