I had to do something with the mint that is growing in my garden but I didn’t know what. I searched the internet for recipes with mint and several recipes came up for mojitos. I had almost everything that I needed already so I gave it a shot! This is what I did:
Classic Mojito Recipe
8 – 10 fresh mint leaves
1/2 lime, cut into thirds
2 tbsp. white sugar
1 1/2 oz. white rum
1/2 cup club soda
- Add the mint and one lime wedge in a large glass and muddle.
- Add the sugar and remaining lime wedges and muddle again.
- Add ice cubes almost to the top of the glass.
- Add the rum and club soda.
- Stir well and enjoy!
