The Mojito: A Simple and Refreshing Classic

20120330-210025.jpg

Mojito
8 mint leaves
.75 oz lime juice
.75 oz simple syrup
2 oz white rum (10 cane or Bacardi)
3 oz sparkling water
Gently muddle the mint with the simple syrup in a glass. Add the rum, lime juice, sparkling water, and ice. Stir to combine. Top with more ice and a mint sprig.

Notes:
What needs to be said, it’s a Mojito. It’s delicious and refreshing. The key is using fresh and high quality ingredients. If you don’t have 10 cane or Bacardi Silver, experiment with other white rums to find one that suits your taste. Try adding fresh fruit like blueberries or mangoes for a tantalizing twist.
