Cuban Mojito

Recipe by  

"This is a traditional mojito recipe, very similiar to the drinks I enjoyed in Varadero, Cuba. The muddling and the order of the ingredients helps ensure that all the flavours are well blended. Serve with a straw and a decorative stir stick to keep the different flavours well mixed together. Mint sprigs may be used for a garnish instead of lime wedges. Enjoy!"

  1. Place 1 teaspoon of sugar into each of two 12 ounce glasses. Squeeze the juice from a lime wedge into each glass, drop in the wedge, and add 2 sprigs of mint. Use a spoon or muddler to mash the sugar, lime juice, and mint together in the bottom of the glasses. Fill each glass about half full with crushed ice. Pour 1/4 cup rum into each glass. Fill the glasses with club soda, stir, and garnish with additional lime wedges.

This is a true Mojito! A must have recipe-I spend most of my summers in and around the Carribean, this drink always takes me back there!

This drink is just o.k. I have made this for several different gatherings, adding more sugar each time, and I still hear from guests that it needs to be sweeter.

Really good mojitos but we went out and bought a muddler the next day because I couldn't get the mint nice and mashed!
