What is A MOJITO?

Mojitos are a cocktail that originated in Havana, Cuba.  Cuban Rum was originally not very smooth, so it was mixed with a little sugar, mint, and lime juice to make it more tasty! All you need are a few fresh ingredients to make this perfectly refreshing cocktail!

Step 1. Make Mojito simple syrup by boiling sugar, water, mint and limes for 10 minutes.

Step 2. Muddle mint leaves and a lime wedge together in a sturdy glass.

Step 3. Add two more lime wedges and simple syrup. Muddle again to release the flavors.

Step 4. Fill the glass with ice. Pour the rum over the ice, and top with club soda.
