What better way to ring in the start of summer than to make mojitos! I remember perfectly the first time I ever ordered one, it was back in 2008 on Salt Spring Island at a little cafe called The Treehouse. It was a warm August evening and the Mojito that I ordered was absolutely the best drink I’ve ever had, a close second would probably be the ones from Ra Sushi in Las Vegas.
Last night I whipped up a small batch of these ( after cycling madly to the store to buy mint and limes of course) and while the recipe I used was fairly strong, they sure hit the spot!
5-7 mint leaves
1.5 tsp powdered sugar
2 ounces rum
2.5 ounces club soda
1. Place mint leaves and the juice from half the lime into a glass. Add the sugar and muddle together
2. Add ice
3. Pour the rum and club soda over top and stir.
4. Add some lime slices and a sprig of mint to finish it off.
