Once again, there is no news. Nothing is new today. Instead, I will share with you my recipe for vodka mojito, a perfect aperitif for these unusually consistent hot summer nights we're having.
First, make the sugar syrup. Dissolve 500 grams of sugar into 500 mls of hot water and bring to a slow simmer, stirring with a metal spoon. Let it cool and pour into an empty wine bottle and store in the fridge.
Second, make lemonade. Put 50 mls of sugar syrup and 50 mls of lemon juice into a 1 litre jug and top up with water. Chill.
Thirdly, put some mint leaves and ice into a tumbler and add a slosh of vodka. Crush the mint into the ice and vodka with the butt of a small knife and top up with lemonade.
