The Mojito is an incredibly refreshing white rum cocktail with fresh mint and lime juice, cane syrup and a top off of soda water. Absolutely delicious.
Total Time 3minutes
3/4ozCane Simple Syrup
Add the mint to the bottom of your glass and pour the cane syrup onto the leaves.
GENTLY press the mint leaves several times with a muddler to release their oils.
Add the lime juice and rum, then fill with crushed ice leaving about 1 inch at the the top of the glass.
Mix the ingredients with a bar spoon lifting the mint through the drink.
Top with soda water and garnish with a nice mint sprig (clap it before you put it in to make it more fragrant).
If you don't have cane sugar on hand you could use granulated but I enjoy the extra layer of flavor that cane sugar ads.And feel free to use any white rum you like, you could also do a little experimenting with dark rums too. With dark rum it would become a sweeter tasting drink with more caramel and spice notes, but maybe you like that!
