The mojito originated in the Caribbean, probably in Cuba. It is more or less a rum smash with the addition of club soda, which makes for a long, thirst-quenching drink.

ingredients

  • 6 fresh mint leaves
  • 4 ½ teaspoons simple syrup (see related recipe at left)
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • Crushed ice as needed
  • 2 ounces light rum
  • 2 ounces club soda
  • 1 lime wedge

directions

1. Put the mint leaves in the bottom of a highball glass. Add the simple syrup and lime juice and muddle well. Fill the glass with crushed ice. Add the rum and club soda and stir briefly. Add the lime wedge.
2. Serves 1.
