This is an authentic recipe for mojito. I sized the recipe for one serving, but you can adjust it accordingly and make a pitcher full. It's a very refreshing drink for hot summer days. Be careful when drinking it, however. If you make a pitcher you might be tempted to drink the whole thing yourself, and you just might find yourself talking Spanish in no time!

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Place mint leaves and 1 lime wedge into a sturdy glass. Use a muddler and crush to release mint oils and lime juice.

  • Add remaining lime wedges and 2 tablespoons sugar, and muddle again to release the lime juice. Do not strain the mixture.

  • Fill the glass almost to the top with ice. Pour in rum and fill the glass with club soda.

  • Stir, taste, and add more sugar if desired.

Cook's Note:

Tonic water can be used instead of club soda but the taste will be different and somewhat bitter.
