Anyone ever have a mojito? I know they've been around forever but are gaining popularity again. I had one for the first time the other day and would have to put it right up there with the margarita. It's has a very clean, refreshing taste.
Here's the recipe I used:
3 fresh mint sprigs
2 tsp simple sugar, or to taste (aka simple syrup)
3 tbsp fresh lime juice (I use half a squeezed lime, and leave lime in glass)
1 1/2 oz light rum
In a tall thin glass, crush part of the mint with a spoon to release the mint oil. Add the sugar and lime juice and stir thoroughly. Top with ice. Add rum and mix. Top off with *chilled* club soda. Add a lemon slice and the remaining mint, and serve.
