Mojitos on repeat for the summer. 💚⠀
10 fresh mint leaves⠀
1/2 lime, cut into 4 wedges⠀
1 tsp raw cane sugar, or to taste - I like more 😋⠀
1 cup ice cubes - crushed is nice but not essential ⠀
1 1/2 fluid ounces white rum - @Bacardiusa works perfectly ⠀
1/2 cup club soda⠀
Place mint leaves on the bottom and 1 lime wedge on top into a cocktail shaker. Use a muddler to bruise the mint and crush the lime to release the mint oils and lime juice. Don’t over muddle! Add 2 more lime wedges and the sugar, and muddle again to release the lime juice. Add ice. Pour the rum over the ice and add carbonated water. Cap and gently shake (watch out, it’s carbonated 💥) or stir, to mix ice and lime/mint bits. Taste, and add more sugar if desired. Pour whole thing into glass. Garnish with the remaining lime wedge. Yum!
