My Thoughts…Not Yours

How to make a Mojito

Its getting hot outside again, and after purchasing a couple mint plants a few weeks ago, Michelle and I decided to make the seasons first batch of Mojitos.  I would have to say that it’s hands down, the best summer drink I’ve ever had. It starts clean, and finishes clean without anything more than a slight minty aftertaste. Best part is, all you need is 1 or 2 drinks the entire night, so it may be a little labor intensive for a drink, but I’m pretty sure you’ll find the reward outweighs the time and effort. Here is a list of what you’ll need

1 Cup of Sugar

1 Cup of Water

*Boil down the water and sugar until you’re left with a yellow, syrup consistency. (called simple syrup)

2- tall glasses


1- bottle of club soda

2-3 batches of mint leaves

* buying the plant once at the garden center is cheaper than buying a small batch at the  grocery store which won’t even last you 1 night….if you can find it in the grocery store.

1- pestle (from a pestle and mortar)

1- Shaker

*Its best made in batches, so you’ll want to wait until you have at least two glasses to fill before you continue making them. Otherwise if you’re having a BBQ or party, you’ll find yourself in the kitchen all night.

    Mojito’s are truely the whip.

    the true cocktail is a lost art and has sadly been replaced with usually anything that will get you jacked up on caffeine and cheap booze
