Fig Vanilla Bean Mojito Recipe
The classic ingredients for a mojito are white rum, sugar, lime juice, mint, and soda water. The Fig Mojito is a delightful variation of the original, perfect for cooling off on a hot day. Fresh figs and mint are muddled together, and then vanilla bean simple syrup is used in place of sugar.
1 Vanilla bean or 1 tsp. Vanilla bean paste
1 cup Granulated sugar
2 oz. Vanilla rum
½ oz. Lime juice
2 to 4 oz. Club soda to taste
Slice a vanilla bean in half so that the seeds are exposed.
In a strong cocktail mixing glass, combine the fresh figs and mint.
