Cocktail time: Mojito & Tequila Sunrise

The world of alcohol, mixed drinks and cocktails is dark, full of unexperienced recipes and ideas. We want to give you tips and ideas on creating your own cocktails.

Today we are going to tell you how to make a Mojito and a Tequila Sunrise. In this blog we reveal the ingredients, the preparation and show you what it should look like in the end…



  • 2 teaspoons brown sugar
  • 4 tablespoons crushed ice
  • 1 lime
  • 8 mint leaves
  • 5 cl white rum
  • 6 cl soda water
  • a Longdrink Glass
  • a muddler


At first you have to wash the lime and cut off the tips. Now cut the lime into eight pieces. After that you put the lime pieces, the brown sugar and the mint into a longdrink glass. Take the muddler and squeeze the juice out of the limes, so it can mingle with the sugar. Fill the glass with crushed ice, add the white rum and fill it up with soda. You can garnish the drink with limes or mint leaves.



A classic cocktail is the famous Tequila Sunrise. It is going to let your sense of taste explode ;-). Additionally it looks like a sunrise, as the name already says.


  • 1 cl Grenadine Syrup
  • 11 cl Orange juice
  • 4 cl Tequila
  • 1 cl lemon juice
  • crushed ice
  • a shaker
  • a spoon
  • a strainer



At first you have to put ice cubes into the shaker and add all the ingredients except for the grenadine syrup. Now shake it, baby! (for 15 seconds) Put the crushed ice in the Longdrink Glass and pour the drink through a strainer into the glass. Carefully add the grenadine syrup and don’t stir up until it has sunk to the ground. In the end you can decorate your drink with a straw and lemon slices.
