This mojito was too sweet for our taste. It could be great with more lime juice. Thanks ratherbeswimmin :) Made for All you can cook buffet
One of my favorites! The simple syrup eliminates the problem of gritty sugar in the bottom of the glass. Still, I sometimes muddle my lime and mint with turbinado sugar instead. I don't always have fresh mint on hand, so I make a mint syrup by simmering 1 part water and 1 part sugar with mint leaves. Cover and refrigerate overnight and strain to remove the leaves, and you've got a great mint syrup that will keep very nicely in the refrigerator. If you're looking for a great mojito recipe, look no further!
Great recipe!! I'm a little calorie conscience so I made symple syrup using 1 part water with 1 part Splenda and it was wondeful. They had key limes at the store so I used 2 per serving. Sitting pool side and sipping on a mojito felt just like I was in the tropics....
Yum, yum, yum, yum and yum again. These are perfect. I can now stop experimenting with those "other" mojito recipes. This one is IT! Thanks for sharing. Perfect!
I liked the idea of the simple syrup...but I still added a little bit of sugar so that I could muddle the mint leaves. I added a full lime and a splash of Roses Lime Cordial. This a good drink and I probably would use this technique again (as long as I remember to make the syrup!!!)
