A classic Cuban mojito is a simple yet sophisticated party favourite. Just muddle up some mint, grab a few limes, add some rum, garnish and voilà.


Ingredients

  • 1 cup mint leaves
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup lime juice
  • 1 1/2 cups lime juice
  • 1 cup white rum
  • soda water

Instructions

  • COMBINE mint leaves and granulated sugar in a pitcher. Pour in 1/4 cup lime juice. Using a muddler or the back of a wooden spoon, mash to release flavour from mint and dissolve sugar. Add 1 1/4 cups more lime juice. Stir in white rum. Add ice to 6 tall glasses. Divide mojito mixture among them. Top with club soda. Garnish with sprigs of mint and sliced lime.
