I'm no green thumb. In fact plants usually die as I'm bringing them through the front door. I assumed nothing was safe from my freakishly unpredictable plant-killing powers until I hit upon herbs.
I'm growing parsley, oregano, mint, thyme, coriander (ok so I'm up to no.3 with this one its not liking me!). They're all thriving in their containers, which means no weeds. Most are planted from seed or cuttings, seriously SEED!
And you know the best thing about having lots of mint on hand .... Mojitos are only a shake away !
Here's the recipe from our cocktail bible Shaken sure to get your Mojo going!
Mojito Serves 1
8 mint leaves
half a lime, chopped
15ml sugar syrup
60ml white rum
Muddle the mint and lime with the sugar syrup in a cocktail shaker.
Add a scoop of ice, then the rum.
Shake vigorously and strain into a chilled tumbler 2.5cm from the top, then top up with soda water.
