Rum, sugar and mint are an amazing threesome. The mojito is a pretty fun drink (I mean, what alcoholic drink isn’t fun) It’s really easy to impress your friends with this muddled cocktail. Go ahead, put on your chinos, have a rooftop party and make this refreshing summer cocktail to keep you in “mint” condition.
What you need:
A white rum such as Bacardi
Some sugar or simple syrup
About 1/4 to 1/2 cup of club soda
3-4 mint sprigs (pick off the leaves)
A glass (duh)
How to make:
Grab a tall glass
Cut your lime into wedges and put about 4 into your glass
Add about two tablespoons of white sugar to your limes (more if you want it sweeter)
Add about 10-12 mint leaves
Add some rum so you can muddle ingredients together (about 1/2 ounce)
After muddling add more rum about 1 1/2 ounces more
Top with ice
Shake vigorously until all ingredients are mixed together and cold
Top off drink with club soda and serve!
