The mojito is one of the most famous rum-based mixed drinks around the world, and despite its relatively long ingredient list, it’s quite easy to make.
- 2 oz. white rum
- 1 oz. lime juice
- 1 oz. club soda
- 2 tsp sugar
- 10 to 12 mint leaves (plus 2 to 4 small sprigs for garnish)
- Ice cubes
Combine lime juice, sugar, and mint leaves in a tall 10-ounce glass (like a Collins glass) and muddle. Add half of the club soda, and stir for 10 seconds to partially dissolve sugar. Add ice cubes, rum, and remaining club soda. Stir again, then add the garnish and enjoy.
