Show Notes for Episode 30 - Angolan Folk Tales

May 12, 2019

Here's where we tell you how to find the recipe for Ginger Mojito, the tales we told, and the podcast we mentioned!


The Booze:

Ginger Mojito
-3 slices of fresh root ginger (thumbnail sized)
-5 to 8 mint leaves (more or less is fine)
-2 oz white rum
-1/2 oz lime juice
-a pinch or so of peppercorn (to taste, optional)
-club soda or ginger ale to taste (depends on how sweet you want the drink, could also add coconut water)

Muddle the ginger and peppercorn in a highball glass (or a shaker if you want to strain it), then add the mint leaves and gently muddle those (just to release the oils, you don't want to break them up too much or you'll get mint leaves in your teeth). Add a bunch of crushed ice to the glass, then add the white rum, lime juice, and club soda/ginger ale. (if you're using a shaker, add ice to the shaker, shake, and fine strain into a glass filled with crushed ice)
