Issue 1 - Cocktail Hour: The Mojita
cocktail hour

Serves 4

Ice cubes
6fl oz light rum
4 whole and 8 broken mint sprigs
6 tbsp fresh lime juice
4 tbsp sugar
Club soda
4 slices lime

Is there anything nicer than sipping a Pimms of a G&T on a warm summer evening in the garden? Probably not but sometimes the occasion seems to call for something more exciting.

People are very coy about cocktails yet many are not complicated and they always impress guests. So here's a guide to making a perfect refreshing cocktail:


Place the ice in a beverage shaker (a large Tupperware cup with a lid would work). Add the rum, the 8 broken mint sprigs (spearmint is lovely), the lime juice and the sugar. Shake well and pour over ice in tall glasses.

Top up each glass with club soda to taste. Garnish with a slice of lime and a sprig of mint. Serve.

What you've been saying about All Things Local...

“ I decided to use All Things Local for my first advert as I liked the magazines concept. I think we all like to use local people for various services if we can. I found Karyn to be friendly,knowledgable and very helpful. The advert designs are great and any alterations are done with great speed. I was delighted with the response to the advert from the start and even though I now have a website which attracts business from far and wide, will continue to keep things local with year round advertising in Karyn's fine publications.“
