Mojitos

By Noveladventurers

Mojitos are a refreshing summer favorite. Sadly, I managed to serve them at a party recently without the lime. I was distracted. But I'm now growing fresh mint and hopefully I'll have plenty of occasions to get it right this summer.
Recipe for 1 mojito:
Mojitos add 5-10 mint leaves to the bottom of a highball glass (or whatever is handy)
add 3/4 ounce of simple syrup (or about 2 tablespoons of white sugar) and muddle the mint and syrup together (I use a mortar & pestle then add it to the glass)
squeeze in 1/2 a lime cut into fourths then add to glass
add crushed ice
add 2 ounces of light rum
top off the rest of the glass with club soda/seltzer water
garnish with a mint sprig
Enjoy!
