Jamie Oliver’s Simple Mojito Recipe


Are you ready to get into the summer vaycay (i.e. vacation) mode with Jamie-s mojito video? It is so simple that I am sure you will never choose store-bought again… You will love it. One thing, use brown sugar if you can!

What are the ingredients?

  • 1 lime, cut in quarters
  • 7-8 mint leaves
  • 1 dessert spoon of sugar
  • 15ml of white rum
  • a splash of soda water
  • Crushed ice

What expressions can we learn from the video?

  • Roll it to loosen the oils. (to emanate)
  • Slice the lime. (to cut with a sharp knife)
  • Spank your mint. (figurative, to hit with your hand )
  • Squash the leaves. (to press into a flatter state)
  • Garnish with some mint leaves. (to put something on food as a decoration)



p.s. this post was inspired by the lazy days of summer…
