Classic Mojitos. Enjoy the refreshing taste of mint and lime in this easy to make mojito recipe!
- 8-10 mint leaves
- juice 1/2 a lime approximately 1 tablespoon
- 4 tbsp simple syrup
- 2 ounces rum
- 4 ounces club soda
Pour water into a small saucepan, bring to a boil. Remove from heat.
Stir in sugar until it completely dissolves and liquid is clear. Let sit and cool to room temperature.
Add the 8-10 mint leaves to your cocktail shaker.
Squeeze in the juice from half a lime. Muddle these together. You only want to muddle the mint leaves enough to bruise the leaves, you don't want to break them up into small pieces.
Add some ice to the shaker.
Pour in the simple syrup and rum. Give it a shake.
Pour the drink over some ice in a highball glass and top with club soda.
Garnish with additional mint leaves and lime wedges.
