I want to show you how to make mojitos in this post. Mojitos are super refreshing and a great Summer cocktail. They are also very easy to make.
Mojitos are made with limes, mint, sugar,rum and sparkling water. You can make a simple syrup for these if you prefer. I use sugar which I muddle with the limes and mint. This simply means you squish the limes with the mint and sugar until the limes are completely juiced.
You need to use white rum for this recipe. Dark will not work. Please enjoy these responsibly!
This is what you need to make delicious mojitos:
½ medium lime – quartered
6 mint leaves – halved + one more for rubbing the glass
1 ½ TBS sugar
1 ½ oz. white rum
Place the lime, mint and sugar in your glass and muddle it with a mortar or the handle of a wooden spoon. Make sure to squeeze out all the lime juice and mix it all well.
Rub the edge of the glass with a mint leaf and fill the glass with 3 or 4 ice cubes.
Add the rum and top with he club soda. Mix and enjoy!
