I made mojito's for my 4th of July party, and everyone loved them. This recipe is the closest to all of the posted ones to what I did, so I decided to rate this one rather than post another recipe that is just slightly different to add to the confusion. My variation: place some ice in a shaker, add about 6 ripped mint leaves, 1 1/2 tbsp of sugar syrup, juice of 1/2 lime freshly squeezed, 2 1/2 ounces rum and shake; pour into glass with a little more ice and top with 1-2 ounces of club soda and stir. I'm going to try them next time without the shaker and really muddling the mint to see if it is better and can eliminate the shaker part. I'm giving this recipe a 4 star instead of 5 because everyone at my party thought it needed the full 2 1/2 oz of rum and I think 2 tbsp of sugar syrup would make it too sweet.

Yum! The mint is out in the garden so I couldn't resist. This a very refreshing drink- it's going to be a hot one today, so I may have to whip up a batch after a day of gardening :). Thanks Julesong.
