 ¾ oz simple syrup
 Top with club soda
 Hibiscus worm salt
1

This refreshing spin on the classic rum mojito provides an opportunity to add a unique ingredient missing from the original recipe: Salt. Not just any salt, but worm salt. For hundreds of years, it has been a tradition to combine the flavor of various worm salts with mezcals, often adding a citrus such as an orange or grapefruit slice. This addition of salt is not used as your typical rim garnish, but rather added to the final product before serving.

Drink
2

Rim your glass with the hibiscus worm salt and set aside.

3

Combine all ingredients and shake.

4

Pour the drink into your salted glass.

Limewheel Garnish
5

Take 1 lime, cutting off both ends to create a more circular shape. Slice a thin circle out of the lime and set aside.

6

Grab one mint sprig, and slide the stem through the center of the lime.

7

If you notice your mint is looking a little sad or withered, just shock it! How you ask? Cut the stems of the mint at an angle and plunge the mint into a cold ice bath for 2-3 minutes.

8

Place the garnish on your drink.
