DIRECTIONS

  • Mix the sugar and water in a medium saucepan. Heat on medium high and bring to a boil.
  • Cut the limes in half and give the mint leaves a crush in your hands and add to the sugar and water mixture.
  • Turn heat down to medium and let simmer for five minutes to steep the flavor out of the mint and limes.
  • Pour syrup through a strainer and chill.
  • Keep the syrup refrigerated.
  • To use this syrup to make a Mojito, pour about 1 tablespoon (give or take) over ice, add your rum and club soda, mix well and serve in a chilled glass.
  • Now I'm not giving anything exact here because I have always eyeballed it when I make mojitos. Just don't use too much syrup, you should be able to figure out a good ratio to fit your taste after a few tries.
