If you are into making cocktail drinks and would like to learn how to make a rum mojito, in truth, the process is actually much simpler than you think. As long as you have the ingredients ready and handy, it will take very little practice until you master the art of making a rum mojito.

The ingredients that are necessary for making a rum mojito are:

how to make a rum mojito1½ oz. White Rum
½ cup Club soda
10 Fresh Mint Leaves
4 Wedges of Lime

After gathering all the necessary ingredients, it’s now time to prepare the cocktail drink. The first process needed in making a rum mojito is muddling, a process in which solid pieces of ingredients are mushed using a muddling tool for bartending. First, get your cocktail shaker, pour in the right amount of rum inside, then place your pieces of mint leaves and lime wedges. Once that’s done, get your muddling tool and muddle all the ingredients inside the shaker together. Make sure to muddle the ingredients complete so that no tiny chunks and pieces are left. There will be no straining the content so it is important that you muddle very carefully and effectively.

Upon finishing with the muddling part, get some ice and place it inside the shaker along with your muddled ingredients. Place the lid of the shaker, grab both bottom and top parts of the shaker making sure they do not separate, and then shake the contents very vigorously, agitating the contents and allowing the liquids to take the temperature of the ice. Now, pour the shaker’s contents into your serving glass. Top the poured content with some club soda. Now you have a rum mojito that you can use and create during family parties and social gatherings.

 

The Drive to Gold Olympic Fundraising Event

The Drive to Gold fundraising event for Olympic hopeful Mary Spencer held on September 17, 2011 was wildly successful. Mary won her bout in the ring against the 2010 Provincial Champion, Amber Groome from Edmonton. Hundreds of people from Windsor Essex packed the warehouse at Drive Logistics on Devon Drive to enjoy a fight night that also included live bands, auctions, and Arial Acrobatics. Mary would like to thank all of the volunteers, her sponsors and especially her main sponsor Drive Logistics for hosting and coordinating the event. Most importantly Mary would like to thank all of her fans and supporters, now dubbed “Team Spencer” who are helping her bring the Gold home to Windsor through their continued financial support, attendance at the events, and for simply cheering her on. Mary is now looking forward to the next event to be scheduled in early spring of 2012
