A cool Summer Drink
- 1 sprig fresh lemon balm leaves (About 5 leaves)
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- 1 1⁄2 ounces rum
- 1 1⁄2 ounces lime juice
- top with Sprite or tonic water
- Put the lemon balm and the sugar in a short glass, and muddle until well mushed together (don't go crazy, or you will have bits of lemon balm in your teeth).
- Add the shot of rum, a squeeze of lime, and fill the glass with tonic water. Add ice and stir gently. Garnish with a lime or lemon balm sprig. Cheers!
You have so brightened my day and I will sneer at all other Lemon Balm Mojito recipes.
Very nice drink! I couldn't really taste the lemon balm much (and I used more than 5 leaves - they were pretty small, though) but it was still a refreshing summer drink. I used Sprite. Thanks for sharing!
Refreshing...great summer drink! I used sprite but think that the tonic water would be great as well...less sweet...
