DIRECTIONS

  • Cut peppermint leaves into smaller pieces and put into a mortar. Add sugar and lemon juice.
  • Grind to crush the the peppermint leaves and the sugar is dissolved.
  • Strain through a sieve into a small glass or bowl.
  • VARIATION I: put 2 teaspoons of Mojito mixture into a glass and cold add beer. Be careful, because the beer has the tendency to produce a lot of foam.
  • VARIATION II: put 2 teaspoons of Mojito mixture into a glass and add ice cold water and then cold beer.
  • Garnish with peppermint sprigs and lemon wedges.
  • NOTE: should make 3 (or 4) glasses.
  • NOTE: I used a German beer with an alcohol content of 4.8%. It is not too bitter and has some sweet notes. It is light in colour. Drinking temperature: German beer is often served with a temperature of 7 C (45 F).
