Peaky Blinder Mojito

We’re in the #rumweek, but since our family holidays are coming closer, I don’t have the time to do a full series of drinks now. Nevertheless I’m going to do a few tasty rumdrinks this week. Inspired by the team of Whatz Hap, who added small bottles of Peaky Blinder Black Spiced Rum to the Father’s Day breakfast boxes last month, I decided to make a Peaky Blinder version of the classic Mojito. To my own surprise, after 551 blogarticles I never mixed a Mojito, so it was about time to create a variation on this true Cuban classic 😉

The rum is of course named after the popular TV series Peaky Blinders, telling the story of crimeboss Tommy Shelby and his family in the Birmingham of the roaring twenties. The Peaky Blinder Black Spiced Rum is blended with multiple herbs and spices, adding layers of oranges, nutmeg, vanilla and raisins.

Peaky Blinder Mojito

50 ml Peaky Blinder Black Spiced Rum
25 ml Perrier
1 Lime
10 Mint leaves
2 barspoons of cane sugar

Add four parts of lime and 10 mintleaves into a large glass. Add the rum, sugar and soda. Muddle. Add crushed ice and stir to bring up the goodness. Garnish with a wedge of lime and a sprig of mint. I was lucky to find a few mintflowers in my garden.

P.S. If you have a small bottle like mine, don’t pour it in the glass but plant it in the ice to serve. Stir it up a little before you drink.
