This is the classic Mojito recipe, unadorned and perfect.
1 teaspoon powdered sugar
Juice from 1 lime (2 ounces)
4 mint leaves
1 sprig of mint
2 ounces white rum
2 ounces club soda
- Place the mint leaves into a long mojito glass and squeeze the juice from a cut lime over it. You'll want about two ounces of lime juice, which is probably the juice from a single lime.
- Add the powdered sugar, then gently crush the mint into the lime juice and sugar with a muddler - use the back of a fork or spoon if one isn't available.
- Add ice (preferably crushed) then add the rum and stir, and top off with the club soda
- Garnish with a mint sprig.
