Transcript:Shiso MojitoHi, my name is Makoto Suzuki with Bozu Restaurant in New York City for About.com Food, and today we are making a shiso mojito.
Shiso Mojito IngredientsFor this cocktail, you will need:
- 2-3 fresh limes
- 4-6 shiso mint leaves
- 2-3 teaspoons sugar
- 2 ounces light rum
- 1 ounce Brazil cachac
- dash of key lime juice
Tear the Shiso Mint LeavesStep one is to cut the limes and put the slices in a stir glass. Then tear the shiso mint leaves. Shiso is a Japanese mint leaf we usually use for Japanese cooking. Shiso is going to give the mojito its unique flavor.
Combine the Shiso Mojito IngredientsNext, put the Japanese brown sugar - its called kibi sato - and simply squeeze the limes. Now I'm mixing lime, shiso, and brown sugar.
The next step is to add two ounces of light rum, one ounce of Brazilian cachaca, and a dash of key lime. And shake it! That's a shiso mojito.
