Easy does it with the day drinking

Ok day drinkers, if mojitos are getting you too wobbly too early in the day, I have a great alternative for you – the Rebujito.

The Rebujito is a simple cocktail of dry sherry, lemon juice, sugar syrup, mint leaves and soda. Served in an highball glass with ice and garnished with fresh lemon. It’s a refreshing cocktail that you can drink all day without ending up on your arse up before dinner….

The Rebujito is extremely popular in the area around Seville, Spain, namely during Feria del Caballo, also known as Feria del Jerez (which translates to horse fair and sherry fair, respectively), an Andalusian-area festival held in the late spring.

INGREDIENTS

60ml Fino or Amontillado Sherry

30ml Fresh Lemon Juice

20ml Sugar Syrup

Fresh Mint Leaves

Soda Water

METHOD

In a highball glass full of ice add sherry, lemon juice, sugar syrup and mint leaves. Gently mix in glass and top with soda water. Garnish with fresh lemon and mint.
