Lively Libations: Fresh, Bright Mojitos

Easy-to-make, versatile, and OH so good! Make a pitcher for fun with friends.

This drink is one of the most refreshing, easy-to-make drinks you can include in your repertoire.

Ingredients: Limes, 4 sprigs of Fresh Mint (10 leaves with one sprig for garnish), Simple Syrup (or sugar), White Rum (or any clear alcohol - no alcohol is great too!), club soda (or any lemon-lime soda), a muddler and a sturdy glass.

Recipe for one serving:

  • Put 10 leaves (without the stems) into the glass.
  • Cut limes into quarters. Some recipes call for a 1/2 lime  (I use at least 2 limes depending on the size of the glass.) 
  • Put 2 quarters of the lime into the glass and muddle to release and combine the mint oils and lime juice. Add more quarters and muddle. Save 2 quarters whole for decoration in the glass and one for garnish.
  • Add 2 tablespoons sugar or one ounce of simple syrup to taste and muddle.
  • Add 1 saved wedge and fill glass with ice.
  • Add rum until the glass is 3/4 full. (You can use less) and stir. Or shake in a shaker and return to glass.
  • Top with club soda, stir, add the mint spring and lime garnish and enjoy!
