For this week’s edition of Food Gold we’re going to teach you how to make a bomb ass Mojito in the comfort of your own home with our pal Justin from No.7 restaurant. These bad boyz are perfect for post-work libations, or in our case, for 4am hijinks when “last call” means “it’s too early!” The recipe is fairly loose so be sure to try out a few variations and see which one you like best. Get Crunk!
