Cocktail of the Month: the Campo Mojito

An inspired twist on a classic.


Published:

Created by Fulvio Virgili of La Curia di Bacco in Rome, this inspired twist on the Mojito combines fresh strawberries and basil selected daily from the famous Campo di Fiori (Field of Flowers) market located just steps away from the restaurant.

1 lime
2 tablespoons light brown sugar
5 medium-sized strawberries
10 medium-sized basil leaves
3 ounces ginger ale
1½ ounces Bacardi light rum
Crushed ice

Muddle together 1/2 lime, sugar and strawberries. Add 6-8 basil leaves, muddle again and cover with a dash of ginger ale. Fill to the rim with crushed ice. Add rum, top off with ginger ale and stir well. Garnish with a lime wheel and remaining basil.
