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
