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 lime 
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.

Serves 4
