Cocktail: Lucky Bones Beach Plum Mojito

Recipe courtesy of Catherine Wilson, Lucky Bones Bar Manager / Spring 2017

1.5oz simple syrup
1.5oz Beach Plum purée
1.5oz light rum
1/2 lime, cut into wedges
4–5 freshly picked mint leaves
Ice
Club soda
Add simple syrup, Beach Plum purée, mint, and lime to pint glass. Muddle. Add rum and top with ice. Fill glass with club soda and stir with a bar spoon. Serve with a lime wheel and mint leaf.

Tips for a great mojito:

• Make sure the mint is completely detached from the stem before muddling or your drink will be bitter
• Use 1:1 simple syrup (most use 2:1). Let the Beach Plum be the main event
• Don’t be shy on the muddle! It should take at least 30 seconds
