A Cuban Drink. Please do use fresh mint. After making this you will be growing your own mint for this drink. I'm not a rum drinker till I discovered this Mojitos!


  1. In a tall thin glass, crush or muddle part of the mint with a fork to coat the inside.
  2. Add the sugar and lime juice and stir thoroughly.
  3. Top with ice.
  4. Add rum and mix.
  5. Top off with the club soda (or seltzer).
  6. Add a lime or lemon slice and the remaining mint.
  7. Serves one.

Thank you for sharing this recipe--it is difficult sometimes to find a single serving recipe. This is delicious and I have also made a diet version with sparkling water and lemon stevia--yum!

Good basic recipe. I used fresh limes and fresh mint. Mint will definitely be in my garden this summer!
