Mojito

(pronounced [mo.hi.to])Mojito recipe
The Mojito is a traditional Cuban highball cocktail. This is one of our favorite hot day drinks as it is very light and refreshing. Once you get the individual drink down, try making a pitcher to last longer.

Cocktail ingredients:
12oz Rum (usually white rum but you can use dark depending on your taste)
12 mint leaves
24oz Club soda (or sparkling water)
1/2 Lime
Tbs Sugar

Directions:
Muddle mint leaves and lime juice and a splash of club soda in a glass. Only bruise when muddling to release the oil of the leaves, do not shred them. Fill glass with ice and add remaining club soda and rum. Stir ingredients together. Garnish glass with lime wedge and mint leave.

Variations:
The Mojito is a good drink to experiment with! Try adding new flavors like muddling strawberries with the mint or using a flavored rum to change the taste. Some recommended flavors to try are Apple, Melon, Orange and Raspberry. Angostura bitters may be added to cut down the sweetness of the drink.
