While there are lots of tasty cocktails out there, it's hard to beat a deliciously refreshing Classic Mint Mojito recipe! Made with just 6 ingredients in less than 5 minutes, your happy hour at home will never be far from reach.
Place the mint leaves in a highball glass and add the lime juice and sugars and gently muddle: press down on the mint leaves, lime juice, and sugars with a wooden spoon or muddler. Muddling releases the oils from the mint leaves. You don’t want shredded leaves floating around in the drink and getting stuck between your teeth—so muddle gently.
After muddling add crushed ice and rum, and top off with club soda. Garnish with a lime wedge and a mint sprig.
Feel free to substitute the sugar with 1 ounce of simple syrup or agave nectar.
Serve with a sugar cane swizzle stick or a wooden chopstick to keep the different flavors well blended.
Make a No-Jito mocktail by replacing the rum with more club soda.
