DIRECTIONS

  • Place lime wedges and mint leaves in a pint glass.
  • Muddle with the handle of a wooden spoon for 30 seconds.
  • Add simple syrup and white rum.
  • Fill glass with ice and top off with club soda.
  • Shake or stir gently.
  • TO MAKE SIMPLE SYRUP:.
  • In a small saucepan, combine 2 parts sugar to 1 part water.
  • Heat until sugar is dissolved.
  • Cool before using (this keeps in the refrigerator for 1-2 weeks).
  • For a fruity twist to your mojito, use flavored rum, such as mango, banana, or pineapple.
  • NOTE: Muddle means to simply bruise or gently pound the limes and mint leaves to release their juices and essence. You can buy a muddler, which looks like a tiny baseball bat or billy club, at any good restaurant store.
