Time for a SHISO MOJITO .
|Bar Trench’s Shiso Mojito|
If you want to have a change and try something as refreshing as the Cuban Classic Mojito . We would recommend one of the mojito’s variation : SHISO MOJITO .
Shiso leaves , also called Japanese Basil leaves or Japanese Mint leaves , are often used as garnish in Japanese restaurants . Shiso are that green round and pointy edged leaves that’s smells good but you don’t know if you should eat it or look at it .
Here in Japan would be easier for you as you can find Shiso leaves in any supermarket .
– White Rum ( I choosed “Santiago de Cuba”) – 45ml
– Shiso leaves – 4~5 leaves
– Fresh Lime juice – 15 ml or quater cut lime
– Sugar – 2 bar spoon .
– Combine shiso leaves , the lime juice and sugar in the glass and muddled slitly . Add the white rum and crushed ice in the glass . Mix with the bar spoon . Top with soda ( wilkinson ) . Garnish with a Shiso Leave . optional : yuzu peel on the top to give a citrus aroma .
