Spring is officially here and we are more than excited to take advantage of our favorite warm weather perk – refreshing cocktails. What’s our go-to? The Classic Mojito. The simplicity of this deliciously light cocktail makes it the perfect recipe for a whole group or just a few.
- 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice
- 2 teaspoons sugar
- 8 fresh mint leaves
- 1/4 cup white rum
- 1 cup ice
- 2 tablespoons club soda
- Lime slice for garnish
Mix the lime juice, sugar and mint leaves in a cocktail shaker. Using the end of a wooden spoon or a cocktail muddler, muddle the mint into the lime juice and sugar. Add rum, stir well and pour over ice. Top the whole thing off with club soda and a lime slice.
