The mint growing in my garden is prolific. I really love mint especially in drinks because it adds such a fresh taste to it. My dad loves Mojitos – I really do too to be honest – and I thought why not making his favorite drink on father’s day?
Ingredients for 2:
- 16 mint leaves
- 1 lime, cut in half, and each half in 6 pieces
- 20 ice cubes, crushed
- 1/3 cup white rum
- 1 tbs simple syrup or cane syrup
- sparkling mineral water
1 . In each 10 oz glass, add mint leaves, 6 slices of lime and cane sugar (or simple syrup).
2 . Using a muddling tool (or wooden spoon), muddle ingredients in the bottom of the glass to release the flavor and juices. Be careful not to over muddle the mint.
3 . Fill the glass to the top with crushed ice, and then add the rum.
4 . Finally fill the top with sparkling water and serve.
