Classic Mojito

The perfect combination of white rum, mint, lime and club soda.  A refreshing drink on a hot day!

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 5 minutes
Total Time 15 minutes
Servings 2 drinks

Ingredients

  • 4 ounces simple syrup *
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • 12 mint leaves
  • 3 ounces white rum (I use Havana Club)
  • ice (to fill the cup)
  • club soda (chilled, enough to fill the glass)
  • 1 lime (sliced in half)

Instructions

  1. Split the simple syrup, sugar and mint leaves evenly between the two glasses. Either using a muddle or the back of a wooden spoon, begin to crush the mint with the syrup in order to release the flavours. Add the rum and squeeze in half a lime (per glass). Stir and add ice. Fill up the glass to the top with club soda. 


Recipe Notes

  • simple syrup is 1:1 ratio of water and sugar. Bring the ingredients to a slight boil so that the sugar melts. Cool to room temperature prior to serving. Can triple the batch and leave in the fridge for one week. You can also add more syrup if you prefer a sweet cocktail.
  • all ingredients are doubled for two drinks. You must split the ingredients for one cocktail. Unless you roll like that, then go ahead ;)
