A glass of Rhubarb Mojito

I think I need to explain what led me to this Rhubarb Mojito – I have just ordered one of those barrel barbeques complete with a cool side barrel smoker. I have been wanting one for a loooooooooooooooooong time. As in at least 2 years.

What this means is that spring and summer are going to be filled with numerous catch ups over food filled barbeques with family, friends and friends of friends (an African thing) from near and far. And I am going to enjoy every single one of these gathering. Fun – here we come.

But barbeques also mean drinks – you know those cool cocktails that are good for bonding over, right? Especially as sometimes barbeques take a while to fire up and so drinks need to be on hand as guests turn up.

To start things off I turned to one of the classic cocktails – aka the mojito. But me being me, I could not just stick to the original version. I needed to add in that little twist in the form of some Rhubarb Syrup. So, my Rhubarb Mojito was born. I love the sweet and sourness the Rhubarb Syrup.
