The Mojito was invented in Cuba in the middle of the 17th century. Traditionally made with rum, lime, sugar, mint, and soda water.
This is a substitute recipe, which means we are listing a common Mojito recipe but feel free to simply substitute Le Tourment Vert absinthe for rum in your own favorite Mojito recipe. You can try mixing in Kübler, La Fee, or perhaps even Obsello or another brand but for this we believe that Le Tourment Vert gives the best results as the anise in most brands tends not to mix well with the mint and lime.
1 Shot Le Tourment Vert absinthe
Juice from 1/2 a lime
1 tablespoon sugar (or half an ounce of bar syrup)
Several sprigs of mint.
Lightly muddle the mint in your mixing tin
add lime juice
1 Shot Le Tourment Vert Absinthe
Shake well then strain over ice into a highball glass.
Get a bit of the muddled mint in the mix for presentation
Top with soda and 7UP
Garnish with lime
