I am on NPR’s Kitchen Window today discussing one of my most favorite ingredients to cook with: Curry Leaves!
Try this lovely Curry Leaves Mojito and tell me what you think!
Curry Leaves Mojito
Manish Kumar, the lead mixologist at The Park hotel in Bangalore, taught me how to mix this drink. He is the genius behind the spicy cocktails at the hotel’s super popular i-Bar. The secret to making this drink is to use really fresh curry leaves. Dried leaves or curry leaf powder will not work in this recipe. Photo is used here with permission.
Makes 1 drink
8 curry leaves
1 thin lemon wedge
1 teaspoon sugar
1/4 cup citrus vodka
In a glass (a short tumbler works best), muddle the curry leaves, lemon wedge and sugar. Top with crushed ice and citrus vodka. Serve immediately.
