Thirsty Thursday--Classic Mojito

 There is almost no other cocktail more refreshing than a
Classic Mojito.

It's perfect on a hot, summer day.
I really love it with lots of mint.

Classic Mojito

8-10 mint leaves
1/2 lime, cut into wedges
1 teaspoon mint simple syrup
2 ounces white rum
club soda or lemon-lime soda
mint leaves for garnish
lime wedge for garnish

In the bottom of a shaker, muddle the mint leaves and lime wedges to release all of the natural juices.  Add ice, mint simple syrup, and rum.  Shake well to combine.  Pour into a glass filled with ice.  Top with soda and garnish with a lime wedge and mint.

  1. One of my favorite drinks in the land, for sure. Haven't had one yet this summer. That needs to change.
