Ah summer - nothing quite like the August heat that gets a girl craving a good minty Mojito. But that Mojito needs an upgrade you say, we we've got one for you.
Let's us introduce to you AGWA de Bolivia - a liquor made of wild coca leaves (don't you fret - they are de-cocainized in Amsterdam). Somehow this mojito tasted more herbal and certainly had more bite than the traditional mojito.
Unfortunately, Agwa does come in that terrifying green color - but it makes such a tasty libation, we're gonna let it slide.
1.5 oz. AGWA
12 Mint leaves
7 oz. Club soda
2 tsp. Sugar
In a large glass, gently crush mint leaves. Then, squeeze lime juice over crushed leaves. Add sugar and ice. Afterwards, add AGWA and club soda. Stir drink well. Garnish with a lime wedge.
