Traditional Mojitos

 

Perfect on a hot summer evening, Mojitos are simply refreshing!  Make the simple syrup/mint mix ahead of time and refrigerate.  When the Mojito urge beckons, the drink can be assembled quickly!!  As well, by blending and then straining the mint, you will not have annoying, unsightly mint leaves stuck to your teeth.

For the syrup mix:

  • 1 ½ cups simple syrup
  • 7 or 8 sprigs fresh mint

 Blend well and then strain, refrigerating mint syrup mix.

 For the Mojito:

Working with 1 glass at a time, run a lime wedge around the edge of the glass to moisten it and give the drink an extra lime kick.

 Mix the following in each glass:

 Garnish with a mint sprig and/or a lime wedge.  Enjoy!!!
