Mojito muddler tool
Ingredients and how to!
Ok I know this is a woodworking site!
But does that mean I need to be serious all the time?
Ok I know I’m retired due to health, but does that mean I need to sit and cry?
So I take my chances…
The project is quite simple compared to the drink.
A piece of wood on the lathe, I used mahogany, turn a bit, to a shape you like, give it some sanding while still spinning, oil it with a food oil to achieve durability and shine. Then make some cuts in it for friction, and re oil.
1. This is how it looks – all of it!.
2. Spinning the lathe.
3. Freehand making cuts (no I did not have a drink yet).
4. What you need (by the way it was Ernest Hemingway’s favorite drink).
5. Ohhh yea and some good rum, I prefer a mix of dark and medium dark.
6. Go for it!.
Mojito ala MaFe:´
A good dark rum (I can recommend: www.cruzanrum.com the dark one is excellent)
Handful of mint leaves
2 tbsp dark cane
1 lime and one half lemon (organic)
Crushed ice or ice cubes
Some soda or just cold water
Lemon, lime, sugar and mint leafs are placed in the glass – now work that muddler into it, until it’s all well mixed.
Add rome and ice and work it again.
Now add water after need and taste, and stir gently.
Parasol, straws, leafs and other toppings after coolness factor!
Go for it!!!
As snack on the side I can recommend:
Sunflower seeds with raisins.
Roast the sunflower seeds golden on a pan with a good salt.
Mix 1 to 5 app. with some good raisins.
(This is a wonderful low fat snack).
Hope it can make some happy evenings around the globe,
