"Delicious! Instead of sugar, I made a simple syrup (2 parts sugar to one part water). Thanks for posting!"
"Oh my!!! I dont' know what I did wrong, but it was HORRIBLE!! I'm glad I tried it before my party."
"Delicious drink! I used a muddler to smash up the mint and REALLY enjoyed the bubbly freshness of this limey-minty-bit-of-perfectness. Thanks for sharing! (**I also like that I did not have to use a simple syrup- the sugar dissolved quite easily!)"
"This was O.K. after I doctored it up a bit. I had to add more sugar and more lime juice to mine before it was acceptable. I also added some Roses' Lime Cordial. I have to play around with with recipe....but after 2 drinks, I couldn't play any more!!!! So for another day....."
"Had my share of these in Cuba, and they are fabulous. They don't just use the lime juice, but the whole half lime, which they squish with the sugar and mint before adding the liquids."
"I love these! These are even good without the rum for a mid day refreshment. Thank you for posting!"
"Very good drink! Have been reading recipes for mojitos for months and wanting to try one. Found fresh mint that actually looked fresh in my grocery, so decided now was the time! Used what was at hand- special reserve amber rum, super fine sugar, fresh lime and Perrier. Excellant, especially refreshing with the hot and firey dinner I made! And all Zaar recipes too! Thanks, Katie! : )"
"First had these in Havana in 2000. This is a good recipe. You need to use white rum, and get Havana Club if you can!"
"Very refreshing and tasty, the perfect Summer drink!"
