It was dusk. We were cycling along the wonky streets of the border town Mae Sot in Thailand and chanced upon a little bar.
As the sky got duskier and we finished our Leo beers, I decided to wander off drinking course and try their Mojito.
It was so awful I took a photo of it on my phone. It seemed as though they had pulverised mint in a blender and added flat soda. I couldn't get it down - and I'm normally a tough cookie when it comes to drinks...
I felt it would be right to tell them how undrinkable it was and I offered to show them how to make a good mojito tomorow.
The manager, Lah said 'yes please!'
I did my mojito research and brought some recipes along on the laptop.
And off we went...
Get your ingredients - which are going to be paradise fresh in Thailand. Good start!
Take a glass and a big smile.
And you'll need the dregs of that bottle of white rum on the shelf.
Add a teaspoon of sugar to your squeezed lime
Add your mint and a bit of soda...
Muddle it together with the back of the spoon. Don't be shy!
Use a good shot or two of white rum (or whatever is left in the bottle)
And Wah Lah! We have a pretty delicious looking mojito!
Lah's verdict "very nice!"
I think we need to have Mojito Monday's now.
I agree. This is fresh!
I think Lah was very thankful ;-)
say hello if you are in Mae Sot!
