Glassaholic: Mojito

September 3, 2014

The Mojito is a popular drink that you can find all over the place these days, even in bars that otherwise suck.  The key to a good mojito is simplicity: fresh mint, fresh lime, simple syrup and a good muddling stick.

We make mojitos around here in the summertime when the mint is growing like crazy.

The Mojito
3 oz dark rum (my gay eclipse)
8 mint leaves (and the top of a sprig to garnish)
1/2 lime quartered
1 t simple syrup 1:1 (cane sugar)
Muddle the mint, simple syrup, and lime in the bottom of a sturdy glass. Add 3 oz of rum and stir. Fill glass with ice and top with sparkling water. Top with a mint garnish.

Delicious and summery.
