Classic Fresh Rum Mojitos
Mojitos are very simple to make. For the best mojito cocktail, use fresh mint and freshly squeezed lime. For variations to the recipe including adding fruit and making it spicy, see the article above.
Makes 1 drink
You Will Need
1 ounce (2 tablespoons) freshly squeezed lime juice
2 teaspoons sugar
8 fresh mint leaves, plus more for garnish
2 ounces (1/4 cup) white rum
1 ounce (2 tablespoons) club soda
Lime slice for garnish
Add lime juice, sugar and eight mint leaves to a cocktail shaker.
Use the end of a wooden spoon or cocktail muddler to bash (or muddle) the mint into the lime juice and sugar. This releases oils from the mint and helps the sugar dissolve into the lime juice.
Add rum, stir well, and then pour into a glass filled with ice, leaving about an inch of room. Top with club soda and serve with extra mint leaves and a lime slice.
