I always think of citrus fruits in terms of summer and refreshing beverages, however it is in winter when most citrus fruits are at their sweetest and it is  that sweetness that brings an extra Je ne sais quoi to the drinks and food. I love the sweetness that the orange gives the glaze in the Christmas ham. It is truly a winter smell and flavour.
Clementine Mojito - Organising Chaos
This cocktail, although it is fresh, it has a little bit of that sweetness that makes it insanely satisfying, and it gives you a nice dose of Vitamin C, are you convinced yet?

This recipe makes 2 cocktails, one for you and one for your huney, or two fore you… up to you!

  • 1 cup fresh squeezed clementine juice
  • ¼ cup lime simple syrup (recipe below)
  • ⅓ cup white rum
  • Mint leaves
  • Clementine wedges or triangles for garnish

First start by making your own syrup, which will be so handy for so many other cocktails you won’t believe it! Bring one cup of sugar, one cup of water and a tablespoon of fresh orange juice to boil until all the sugar has been dissolved. Let it cool to room temperature and then putting in a jar and keep it in the fridge. It should last around 2 weeks.

Once the syrup has cooled down, mix the clementine juice, syrup and rum in a cocktail shaker.Place a handful of mint leaves in two glasses, add some ice and serve the cocktail. Garnish with some clementine triangles and enjoy it.

As the sweetness of the clementine varies, you may need to adjust the amount of syrup. Play with it.

Have a great, great weekend.
