Recipe spotlight: Mastiha mojito

Mastiha (or mastic) is one of Greece’s most exotic spices, faintly reminiscent of pine with an almost musky aroma. It is made from resin obtained from the mastic tree. Greek American celebrity chef Diane Kochilas provides a brief history on it HERE.

If you’re looking to spice up your traditional summer cocktail list, try adding mastiha liquor to a classic mojito – the flavor pairs well with refreshing mint.

Learn how to make a mastiha mojito at home from this simple Difford’s Guide recipe. Or just visit one of Greektown’s many alfresco dining options and order off the menu like you’re on a Mediterranean holiday.
