Try this refreshing summer drink.
Soda water or lemonade
Grab around eight mint leaves and a good few handfuls of basil and you're ready to make classic mojitos and Italian pesto!
Fill a large glass, half full with crushed ice and add the mint leaves. Add around 30 ml of lime juice (either freshly squeezed or lime flavoured cordial is fine).
Gently mash the mint leaves together with your mixture using a spoon or pestle while keeping the leaves in tact (nobody likes floaties in their drink). Fill your glass with more ice and then top up with soda water or lemonade. Garnish with extra mint and you're ready to go. For an R18 version add vodka or white rum to taste.
