Sorrel is an herb with a sharp taste that brings a sweet and refreshing flavor to this cocktail. It’s also a term used to describe a color of horse, but I wouldn’t recommend eating those. Sorrel has been introduced to North American agriculture.
1 oz. light rum
1 tsp. cane sugar
½ lime, chopped coarsely
2 oz. sorrel syrup
Preparation of Sorrel Syrup
Work in a blender and strain through a sieve 8.8 oz. sorrel, 17.6 oz. sugar, 33.8 oz. water, and lemon juice to taste.
Preparation of the Cocktail
Prepare like a mojito. Muddle together rum, cane sugar, and the coarsely chopped lime.
Add approximately 2 oz. sorrel syrup, fill glass with crushed ice, and top with club soda. Garnish with sorrel leaves or lime slices.
