There's truly nothing better than a refreshing mojito on a hot day! We love this simple recipe to take to the beach or pool. The recipe below is for a single drink, so multiply by how many guests you have, and serve in a pitcher to get the party started!
- 5 mint leaves, more for garnish
- 2 oz white rum
- 1 oz lime juice
- 1/2 oz simple syrup
- Club soda
- Limes, sliced
Muddle your mint in the simple syrup, then add the rum and lime juice, and shake. Pour into a glass full of ice and top with club soda. Garnish with a lime wedge and a mint leaf! (straw umbrellas highly recommended)
Remember to give your mint leaves a good clap in the palm of your hand to release the flavor before adding to your drink. You can add other fruits for fun flavor options - throw them in with the mint before you muddle. For club soda, we love Trader Joe's Sparkling Limeade for an added splash of sweet, lime-y goodness!
