Hell--let's drink


Mojito—MOH-heeto!—yum. Minty, deadening.

Can you tell I have been discussing charges with the phone company—I would hook up an IV of this stuff if I had the makings—or the makings of any alcholic drink.

A place out here has Mojito-Making Classes, which sounds like a nice thing if you’re unemployed.

They teach Ernest Hemingway’s recipe.

Each person gets a muddler (search me).

There is live music.

Each person also gets rum, mint leaves, sugar and ice.

Some people don’t bruise the mint enough. Shame on them!

2 oz fresh squeezed lime juice
2 oz white Bacardi rum
1 heaping tablespoon of sugar
2-3 sprigs fresh mint
2 oz club soda
Splash of bitters
Lime wedges

Put 2 wedges of line, sugar, bitters and mint in a wide cocktail glass. Muddle these (crushing stirring). Add the lime juice and stir to dissolve the sugar. Add ice, rum, and soda.

Then you know what to do. Cheers.
