The Snowball Effect

Fox took this classic mojito and gave it flair — familiar mojito flavor, but presentation was everything. Packed high with crushed ice and mounded like a snow ball. Refreshing.

Fox Liquor Bar is located in the basement of an old Piggly Wiggly in downtown Raleigh. Currently residing in the Piggly Wiggly above are Chuck’s and Beasley Chicken & Honey.  All three were created by Chef Ashley Christensen.

Fox Liquor has the feel of an old speak easy, a well appointed basement with dim lighting.  Their cocktails have an edge, each with its own style of ice and garnish.  The bar is long and the bartenders knowledgeable.  Well done.

Classic Mojito

Ingredients:
2 parts rum
4 lime wedges
12 fresh mint leaves
2 heaped tsp of caster sugar
1 part soda water/club soda
Sprig of fresh mint to garnish

Gently squeeze lime wedges into sugar. Bruise the mint leaves by clapping them between your palms, rub them on the rim of the glass and drop them in. Half fill the glass with crushed ice, add the rum and stir. Top up with crushed ice, a splash of soda and a sprig of mint.
