Fall Fig Mojito
2 T simple syrup (instructions as follows)
1 lime, juiced (plus more lime for garnish)
1 fig, peeled and chopped (plus more for garnish)
1 shot of white rum (Havana is my preferred rum)
a handful of fresh mint
Sparkling water (soda water)
Combine simple syrup, lime juice and chopped fig to a glass. Muddle together until most pieces are broken apart. Clap mint in hands a few times to release the flavor. Add mint and rum. Muddle gently. Add crushed ice to to fill up glass. Top with sparkling water. Garnish with fresh fig and lime.
In a small sauce pan warm water and bring to a slow boil, add sugar until dissolved.
