I’ve made it my mission to find the perfect mojito recipe – I know, it is a tough job. So I’ve tried dozens of different recipes (See the sacrifices I make?) and have come up with what I think is the perfect mojito. The secret is the simple syrup and the bitters.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place the mint leaves and simple syrup in a glass and muddle the mint until the leaves are crushed and the flavor is released.
  2. Add the rum, lime juice and bitters and stir to combine.
  3. Top with club soda and stir lightly.
  4. Garnish with a sprig of mint and lime wedge.

Excellent! I used a collins glass with about 8 pieces of ice, added the ingredients, stirred then waited for 5 minutes, and the resulting mojito is superbo!!

A really nice mojito. However I added more soda as it was a little too sweet for me. I love mojitos and I will make this often.
