One of the most refreshing drinks of all time
Descended from the “Draque,” the 16th-century Cuban cocktail named for Sir Francis Drake, the Mojito is to many the perfect rum cocktail. A classic summer companion, it's hard to find a much more refreshing combination than mint, lime, light rum, and club soda.
2 oz. white rum
3⁄4 oz fresh lime juice
1⁄2 oz simple syrup
3 mint leaves
club soda, to top
Add the mint sprigs and sugar to a Collins glass.
Muddle the mint by pressing it lightly with a muddler to release the oils.
Drop in lime pieces and muddle to release juice.
Add rum, stir and add ice.
Top with soda water.
Garnish with a mint sprig and a lime wheel.
