Cuban Mojito

Like many great drinks, there are many different ways to make a mojito (pronounced mo-he-toe), but his recipe, by far, is my very favorite on a warm sunny day!


1 teaspoon powdered sugar
2 ounces lime juice
4 mint leaves
1 sprig of mint
2 ounces white rum
2 ounces club soda


1. Place mint leaves into a tall mojito/tom collins glass and squeeze the juice from a cut lime over it.
2. Add the powdered sugar and then gently smash the mint into the lime juice and sugar with the back of a fork or spoon if one isn't available. Add ice (I prefer crushed) and then add rum and stir.
3. Top off with the club soda.
4. Garnish with a mint sprig.
