Lao Lao Mojito

I adapted the Cuban mojito so that it can be made in Laos.  I haven’t seen rum since I got here – I don’t know why because they do import other Western hard alcohol.  Lao Lao is probably the most consumed alcohol in Laos.  It’s made from rice and a lot of people make it in their homes.  I don’t know how it compares to sake, but you could try substituting sake and see how it goes.  Rum is the most authentic option though, if you have it.

juice of 2 large limes (6 T)

1/2 C fresh mint, chopped

3 T sugar

1/2 C water

3 T Lao Lao (rice wisky)

ice

Combine the first 5 ingredients, stir until the sugar has dissolved.  Serve over ice in 2 glasses.  Garnish with a sprig of mint.

serves 2
