Muddled Thunder Mojito

Ellis and Zoe drew the low number and were first up to make their drink.  Each contestant was immediately aware of the stakes when Ellis presented his "mojito kit," making an immediate play for shizzle points!  Note the condoms just above the double jigger (where else), which Ellis believed might be in order after a few Muddled Thunders!

Muddled Thunder took the full Shizzle point from each of the judges, not only for the kit but also the name.  Tasting notes included "great drink", "good flavor balance", "bright taste", and "very refreshing".  Muddled Thunder does not include mint, which raised a couple eyebrows, but it is definitely one of those drinks that you could have five of.  In an hour.  Ouch.

1 Packet of Sugar in the Raw
1 Large Strawberry
1/2 Lime
1/2 Lemon
1.5 oz Strawberry Infused Simple Syrup
3 oz. Bacardi Superior white rum
Finish with Club Soda
Garnish with Lemon and Strawberry

1.  Squeeze juice from 1/2 lemon and 1/2 lime.
2.  Muddle one large strawberry, packet of Sugar in the Raw with lemon and lime juice.
3.  Add Strawberry Simple Syrup and Rum.

4.  Shake well and pour into tall glass.

5.  Finish with club soda.  Garnish with strawberry and lemon.

This is a great tasting and great looking mojito!
