FIG, MINT & LIME
We could’ve called this a “Moroccan Mojito,” but we restrained ourselves. Regardless, Mahia’s fig and anise come alive with fresh mint, and a little fresh lime and club soda take it into super-refreshing territory. If you’re paying attention, white spirit + lime + sugar + club soda is a mojito… but this version is even more vibrant than the original.
1 ½ oz Mahia
1/2 oz simple syrup
10 mint leaves + 1 bouquet of mint leaves
1/2 oz lime juice
2 oz club soda
3 lime wheels
To an empty cocktail shaker, add 10 mint leaves and simple syrup. Gently press on the mint leaves. Add ice, along with Mahia and 1/2 ounce of lime juice. Shake all that up until well-chilled, and strain into a tall glass with fresh ice. Top with 2 ounces of club soda. Garnish with a straw, 3 lime wheels, and a big bouquet of mint.
