Mint mojito

My aunt introduced me to my favorite drink a few years ago, the mint mojito! I have it many different ways and at many different restaurants but nothing is better than making it on your own. Its simple and cheap and here are a few tips to making mint mojitos all summer long.

Grow your own mint. Mint is extremely easy to grow and it as so many uses around the house and in recipes. However mint is extremely invasive and will take over wherever it is planted. My advise for growing mint is in a large pot, this will prevent it from taking over.

The other reason to grow your own mint is to save money. In the store the cut mint can be up to $4 for a few leaves and God only knows when that was picked.

The most important bartending tool you can have to make this drink is a muddler.  A muddler is a barteding tool used like a pestle to mash, muddler and smash fruit, herbs and spices for drinks to release flavors.  This tool can be found at stores such as Target , Williams-Sonoma and Bed Bath and Beyond for under $20.  They can get pretty expensive so be careful where you search for one.

Enjoy your mint mojitos this summer!  Cheers!

Mint Mojito

Makes one refreshing drink

4-5 mint leaves

1 oz simple syrup

4-5 lime wedges

2 oz of your favorite rum

Topper of soda water or lemon-lime soda

Ice

To make simple syrup measure equal parts of sugar and water and pour into a pan.  Heat until all the sugar is dissolved and the liquid is clear.  Place in an air tight container and store in refrigerator.  Simple syrup expires in one week. 

Place a few rushed iced cubes in the bottom of a tumbler glass along with ripped up mint leaves, limes and simple syrup.  Muddle ingredients together.  Fill tumbler to top with ice and add your rum.  Cover top and shake away!  Remove lid and top with soda.  Garnish with lime and enjoy!
