Lemongrass Mojito

Its fascinating discovering the origins of a cocktail. I recently wrote about G&T and its origins. The British loved it for its preventative measures against malaria. You can read the article here .

 

Now, I have learnt that the MOJITO was developed to prevent scurvy.  They are all trying to fool us, of course. Citrus alone could have prevented scurvy. But hey, why not add some alcohol to the liquid, oh and sugar, they both make us feel good and help to relieve the impact of the sour mouth contortion.  

 

Don't get me wrong, I love a MOJITO and am grateful. Recently, we visited our friends at Blackwattle Farm and took a stroll to the kitchen garden. We pulled out some lemongrass, spearmint and basil flowers for the garnish.  Then picked juicy limes and took them back to our Tinker Caravan Bar where I happened to have a bit of white rum and sugar.

 

Look what happened :

 

 

"It's delicious!" thats what we all proclaimed.

"Hooray! We won't get scurvy!"
