Magnifico Mojito

Here is a refreshing drink, full of flavour but beware, it goes down super easy! And just to make sure they were ok to share with the public, my hubby and I whipped up a batch. The things we do for you...

Ingredients per one large mojito:

~ 12 mint leaves (spearmint works best)
~ 1/2 lime, cut into wedges
~ 2 Tbsp of simple syrup (dissolve equal amounts of sugar and water over heat, let cool)
~ 1 1/2 ounces white rum
~ Club soda

Put mint leaves and lime wedges into bottom of a large tumbler. Muddle (press) leaves and lime wedges, gently to release flavours. Tip: We used a mortar and pestle, then transfered to a glass. Much easier. Add the simple syrup. Fill glass to top with ice. Add the rum and then top with club soda. Garnish with mint and a lime wedge.

Perfect on a sunny day! Or anyday really. : )
