The Greek Version of the Mojito uses Metaxa Brandy and may taste a bit snazzier next time you are tanning on a Greek Island this summer. The drink is pretty simple to make and can get any summer party started the right way. The Drink is light and refreshing.
Start with 1 1/2 oz of Metaxa 7*, 3/4 oz. lemon Juice, club soda, 2 lime wedges, 2 tsp. brown sugar, 10 mint sprigs. Muddle sugar, lemon juice, lime wedges, and mint in a highball glass. Fill with crushed ice, add Metaxa and top off with soda water. Then at the end Stir and Garnish with mint sprigs.
Preparation of the Greek Mojito as follows:
– Put sugar, lemon juice and mint into a glass
– Add a quartered lime and muddle it
– Infuse METAXA 5* and soda water
– Stir it with a bar spoon
– Mint sprig
