Persian Mojito

Persian Mojito
by radius-of-the-persian-cat
Sitting in the garden, at 32 degrees the hottest ever recorded April in Munich. Reading Hooschang Golschiri's "Man with the red tie" and mixing my first Mojito of this year. And then this deja-vu: Sparkling water, pepermint leafes, lime ... just the white rum does not really complies to the Doogh recipe. But here we have another example that every single item in western civilisation was first invented in ancient Persia. Just that the westeners replaced the yoghurt with alcohol, and - voila - serve it as their own, extra lavish cool summer drink. Here is the modified western recipe:
  • 1 teaspoon sugar (ordinary our brown cane sugar, per gusto)
  • 1/4 sliced lime
  • about 5 pepermint-leaves
  • 5 ice cubes
  • 25 ml white rum (Havanna Club to support our Cuban comrades, avoid Bacardi, please)
  • crush with a piston and fill up with gased mineral water.
And here the variation for tea-totaler or strong muslims:   replace white rum with yoghurt and call it Doogh. Whichever you prefer:  enjoy it
