Jo Jo Original Instructions

The Jo Jo Original is a classic cocktail that combines the refreshing flavors of citrus and mint. It is the perfect drink to enjoy on a hot summer day or as a pick-me-up after a long day at work. To make a Jo Jo Original, start by filling a cocktail shaker with ice. Add a generous amount of fresh mint leaves to the shaker, followed by the juice of one lemon and one lime. If you prefer a sweeter drink, you can also add a splash of simple syrup to the mix. Next, use a muddler or the back of a spoon to gently crush the mint leaves, releasing their fragrant oils. This step is crucial for infusing the cocktail with the refreshing flavors of the mint. After muddling the mint, add a shot of vodka to the shaker. You can use any type of vodka you prefer, but a high-quality, clean-tasting vodka will enhance the flavors of the cocktail. Shake the mixture vigorously for about 15 seconds to ensure that all the ingredients are well combined and chilled. Then, strain the cocktail into a glass filled with ice. Garnish your Jo Jo Original with a sprig of fresh mint and a slice of lemon or lime. The vibrant colors and aromatic garnish will make your cocktail even more visually appealing and inviting. Sip on your Jo Jo Original and enjoy the invigorating combination of citrus and mint. The tartness of the lemon and lime juice is perfectly balanced by the sweet mint and the smoothness of the vodka. It is a truly delightful cocktail that will transport you to a state of relaxation and bliss. So, the next time you are in need of a refreshing and delicious cocktail, give the Jo Jo Original a try. It is a simple yet sophisticated drink that is sure to impress your guests or simply provide you with a moment of indulgence. Cheers!

Best served in a Old-Fashioned Glass.
