No wooden pestle? No problem!
If you’re whipping up a batch of mojitos and your wooden pestle is missing in action, don’t panic! Instead, use your wooden spoon to muddle the mint. To do, flip the spoon and use the blunt end to firmly press the mint into the sugar until the herb turns dark green and releases its essential oils and fragrance.
