Brings me right back to the Atlantis in the Bahamas. "Tastes like a minty lemonade!"

As written, I thought it was a very good cocktail but not the best Mojito I've ever had (it was lacking in lime flavor). But once I added some fresh lime juice, it was THE perfect Mojito. I have saved this recipe to my main cookbook, to which I have added a private note to add at least 2 tablespoons of lime juice and plenty of mint leaves.
