Our culinary team team loves to muddle. We especially enjoy making and sipping a classic mohito on a warm evening. Guy, from Guy’s Big Bite, demonstrated an interesting wine and lime twist that we adapted to the fruit we had on hand. Delicious and addictive .
Sonoma Wine Mohito
In a tall glass, add several lime wedges, 4-6
Add several mint leaves to taste, 6-12. We like extra mint.
Add grapes, 6-12, of one variety or all 3 colors of red, purple and green. (We only used green grapes, which kept the finished Mohito a pretty pale green shade).
Muddle well to extract all juices.
Add ice and
2 oz of simple syrup
2 oz of Sonoma County white wine, any variety.
2 oz of silver rum.
Stir all ingredients.
Top with club soda, perhaps 1-2 oz to taste, for that final fizzle and sizzle.
Add a mint leaf, lime wedge or grapes to garnish.
Tip: When we have extra grapes we pop them in the freezer, then use them as a cool drink garnish. You can freeze them naked, or dusted with cane sugar.
