Classic Mojito

Classic Mojito - a light and refreshing cocktail with a bright lime flavor and cool mint undertones.| #cocktail

This version of the classic cocktail – made with fresh mint, lime, and rum – is light and refreshing with a bright citrus tang balanced by cool mint undertones.




  1. Muddle the mint with the coarse sugar and lime juice in a cocktail shaker. Add the rum and simple syrup and shake well.
  2. Pour into a highball glass filled with ice. Stir in club soda. Garnish with a lime wedge or mint sprig if desired.


*To make simple syrup, stir together 8 ounces (1 cup) water with 7 ounces (1 cup) granulated sugar in a saucepan set over medium heat. Heat, stirring occasionally, just until the sugar has dissolved into the water. Store in a jar or other airtight container in the refrigerator. This will make enough for several drinks.
