A signature summer drink, the mojito is light and refreshing! This version uses locally-sourced “Garden Mint,”
probably available in your backyard.
2 oz. light or white rum
(no need for the pricey stuff, a basic rum like Cruzan will work just fine)
Juice of 1 lime
Lime zest (optional)
1/2 cup Garden Mint leaves
About a cup of club soda
Simple syrup, agave nectar, or honey to taste
Blend all ingredients on high. Pour into a frosty glass and
garnish with lime slice and mint leaves. This is a recipe
for one drink, always adjust ingredients for individual
preferences. Remember: club soda is a carbonate so when
making multiple drinks, allow room for expansion. This
drink can be prepped two hours ahead of time and stored
in an airtight container.
Stir well before serving.
