Mojito Recipe Ingredients
The ingredients for mojitos are simple, and you probably have them on hand.
- 12 mint leaves
- 1/2 lime
- 1.5 ounces of simple syrup
- 1-ounce white rum
- 3 ounces of club soda
How to Make a Mojito
First, snip a few sprigs of fresh mint from the garden. Place 12 mint leaves in the bottom of a tall glass. Next, use a reamer to juice half of a lime, then add the juice to the mint leaves.
Pour the simple syrup into the glass
Muddle the mixture in the glass to gently release the essence from the mint leaves.
Next, fill the glass with ice.
To serve, garnish with springs of mint and slices of lime.
Note: If you want to remove the muddled mint, strain before serving.
