My aunt gave me some recipes for a shower that she gave me for my wedding. One of those recipes was for these mojitos. They are almost a little too delicious! And very easy to drink!
3 sprigs mint
1/2 cup lime simple syrup, recipe below
1-1/2 shots light rum
splash of club soda
mint and lime for garnish
Simple Syrup ingredients:
3/4 cup fresh lime juice
1/4 cup water
1 cup superfine sugar
For the simple syrup. Combine all the ingredients in a small saucepan. Bring to boil and boil for 2 minutes. cool.
Divide the mint and lime among the glasses and muddle. (My aunt gave me a wooden muddler, but you could use the end of a wooden spoon to break up the mint and lime). Add the simple syrup, rum, club soda and a few ice cubes. Garnish with lime and mint.
