Perfect Mojito

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by LizzieBug

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.

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!!
