Recipe by NcMysteryShopper
This is a fabulous Mojito recipe that makes enough for 4 glasses. I usually double or triple the recipe and serve it in a glass pitcher that is garnished with mint leaves. Perfect for Cinco de Mayo! This Mojito can be made with either white or gold rum but don't leave out the bitters. ¡Vivas!

This was my first time having a mojito, I'm more of a girly frou frou type drinker, this was lovely for something different, tart, refreshing & using up some fresh mint from my garden, great stuff. Thanks!
