With St. Patrick’s Day approaching this weekend, I felt it was appropriate to whip up some tasty, minty green mojitos! This light, refreshing beverage is by far one of my favorites. Here’s the scoop on how to make the classic mojito.
Chill glassware prior to preparing your drinks – a small detail that adds that an extra dash of refreshing.
- 1/2 lime
- 10 mint leaves
- 1 tbsp. sugar
- crushed ice
- 1 1/2 oz. light rum
- club soda
1. Muddle* sliced lime and mint leaves with sugar in a chilled glass.
2. Add ice and rum. I tend to be a little generous ;)
3. Pour soda and top with a little mint leaf garnish. Ready to serve!
*Muddling: the process of mashing food ingredients, commonly fruit and herbs. To muddle, place fruit and herbs into a heavy-bottomed glass. Crush ingredients together using a light grinding motion. You can find a variety of different muddling tools here.
