Mojito

Summers call for refreshing drinks. We love mojitos because of the potted mint that is always ready for a trim.

ingredients

¾ oz simple syrup
2 sprigs mint, plus more for garnish
2 oz white rum
¾ oz fresh lime juice
Club soda

directions

Muddle simple syrup and 2 mint sprigs in a cocktail shaker. Add rum and lime juice. Fill shaker with ice, cover, and shake vigorously until outside of shaker is very cold, about 20 seconds.

Strain cocktail through a Hawthorne strainer or a slotted spoon into a tall Collins glass filled with ice. Top off with club soda; garnish with more mint.
