Mojitos

I love mojitos. This recipe has the perfect balance of rum, lime, mint and sweetness. Word of caution, it is extremely strong. One is enough. The best rum to use is a white rum--be aware of the alcohol content of the rum you choose. Barcardi works great. You can also make different flavored mojitos with flavored rum or by muddling some fruit in it. I have made it with pineapple rum or using fresh strawberries.



Mojitos
1 ounce lime juice
2 ounces sugar syrup
4 ounces rum
mint
splash club soda
Muddle lime, syrup and mint. Add rum and mix. Add splash of soda and ice.
