Mojito Cocktail Recipe - Summer Drinks

Today I bring you another recipe of a Summer drink: Mojito.


  • 2 tablespoons (1 ounce) fresh lime juice
  • 2 heaping teaspoons superfine sugar
  • 1 cup crushed ice
  • 12 fresh mint leaves, plus 5 small sprigs for garnish
  • 1/4 cup (2 ounces) white rum
  • 2 tablespoons (1 ounce) club soda

  • Directions:

    In 10-ounce glass, stir together lime juice and sugar until sugar dissolves. Add 1/4 cup crushed ice. Rub mint leaves over rim of glass, then tear leaves in half and add to glass. Gently stir for 15 seconds, then add rum, remaining crushed ice, and club soda. Gently stir for 5 seconds, then tuck mint sprigs into top of glass and insert tall straw.
