Mojitos! My favorite. And very easy.
Don’t use simple syrup if you want a more authentic taste – muddling the sugar, lime juice and mint leaves is how it’s done in Cuba!
This makes a big drink with less alcohol (usually you’d add just a splash of club soda), perfect for sipping on a hot day.
- 10 fresh mint leaves, plus more for garnish
- 1/2 lime, cut into 4 wedges
- 2 tablespoons white sugar, or to taste
- 2-3 ounces white rum
- 1/2 cup club soda
