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)
*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.
