Refreshment incoming.
Alicia Taylor

Does this frozen Mojito deliver big-time refreshment? Yes. Will you regret making it? Not at all. This recipe asks for Thai basil, but if it’s unavailable substitute sweet basil or a mix of basil and mint.



1.Combine sugar, lime leaves and 250ml (1 cup) water in a small saucepan over medium heat. Stir until sugar is dissolved then simmer 1 minute. Set aside to cool then place in the fridge to chill (2 hours). Strain syrup once cool.
2.Blend syrup and basil in a blender until very smooth. Add juice and rum and blend until combined. Divide crushed ice between 6 serving glasses, top with basil mixture and stir to combine. Garnish with extra Thai basil or mint leaves.
