An exotic twist to a classic cocktail: our Kumquat Mojito features a perfect blend of tangy kumquats, zesty lime, and refreshing mint to tickle your taste buds. It’s the ultimate thirst-quencher for a sunny day or a cheeky night in.
What you need
- 4 kumquats, halved
- Small handful fresh mint leaves
- ½ lime, cut into wedges
- 2 tsp. sugar
- 60ml white rum (we use Bacardi)
- Crushed ice
- 120ml soda water
- Optional garnish: sliced kumquats, mint sprig
In a cocktail shaker, combine the halved kumquats, mint leaves, lime wedges, and sugar.
Muddle the ingredients together, gently crushing the kumquats and mint leaves to release their juices and flavours.
Pour the muddled kumquats, mint and lime into the cocktail glass and top with crushed ice, leaving some space at the top for the club soda.
Pour the white rum over the crushed ice.
Top up the glass with club soda, and give the mojito a quick stir to combine the ingredients.
Garnish with kumquat slices and a mint sprig if desired. Cheers!
✨ RECIPE NOTES ✨
- Sweetness: Adjust the sugar to taste, depending on the tartness of the kumquats and your personal preference.
- Mocktail: For a non-alcoholic mocktail version, simply omit the white rum and add extra club soda.
- Supersize it: To make a pitcher, multiply the recipe by the number of servings you want, and combine the ingredients in a large jug or pitcher. These go great with outdoor summer BBQs!
