How to Make the Best Mojito- Cocktail in the Bush- Karijini outback

Yields: 4 Servings Difficulty: Easy Prep Time: 10 Mins

Hello Foodies,

This week i  take you back to two places in one.  The first place is Havana, Cuba, where the “Mojito” was born. The second place is Karijini National park in Western Australia. Paradise on earth shaped by an amazing landscape, beautiful rock formation with deep gorges and natural pools.

Chris, the other Frenchy, a brother to me, was really happy to share his “Mojito” recipe after a full day tracking the gorgeous of the Karijini National park.  I believe we really disserved that cocktail and the many more we had that night. Chris is an all rounder as a qualified Chef but also Maitre D and part of the French Barman Association. (instagram @tofer_froggy)

The Mojito is my cocktail of choice when it is really hot and humid. It is so refreshing, zingy, fresh… Just imagine a little bit of Rum, lime, sugar mint, ice and soda water…. As simple as this.

Hope you enjoy the video as i am sharing some insight of the beautiful national park.

Cheers to you all.

Remember to drink wisely and responsibly.

This cocktail can be made with any white Rum, the preference is still for Bacardi or Havana club.

You can make it a Mocktail, free of alcohol, with just Soda water.

Or try the Mojito Royal, with Champagne instead of Soda water.
