When I first tried Samogon the first drink I immediately thought of was the rum-inspired Mojito. For me Samogon has somewhat of a minty flavor so I knew I just had to come up with a Mojito inspired drink recipe for my first ever Lushworthy Creation. So I hit up my local grocery store for a few ingredients and went to work in my drink laboratory (a.k.a. the kitchen table) to create a drink I had already dubbed “The Samog-ito.” Below is a picture of all the ingredients I used to create my Lushworthy concoction.
Now I’m sure you see the bottle of Simply Lemonade and might be a bit confused since I’m making a Mojito inspired drink. But in my opinion lemonade is the ultimate mixer so I strongly believe that a splash of lemonade in any cocktail goes a long way. And below is a picture of why I need to purchase a muddle ASAP if I plan on creating any more drink recipes. The glass I was using had a bit of a yellowish orange hue to it so it kind of made my muddled ingredients look a little drab.
After muddling the mint, lime juice, and sugar I added my Samogon, Simply Lemonade, and club soda. I added ice, mixed it a bit, added a garnish and VOILA…“The Samog-ito” was born. (Check out the drink recipe below this picture.)
2 oz Samogon
2 Mint Leaves
1 tsp Sugar
1 oz Simply Lemonade
1.5 oz Club Soda
Muddle two mint leaves, the juice of half a lime, and sugar in the bottom of a tall glass. Add Samogon, Simply Lemonade, and club soda. Add ice, stir, and garnish with slice of lime.
