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...

“ Having previously wasted a lot of money on advertising in magazines without any success I was wary about going in “All Things Local" which was recommended to me by a friend, but having met Karyn the editor and realising that she was as passionate about her magazine as I am about personal training I decided to give it a go. Karyn produces a professional, well written magazine crammed with useful stuff, and most important provided me with clients. Keep up the good work“
