Mojitos to Start the Weekend Off Right

I love a Friday happy hour cocktail on my roof deck.  This week I had a craving for a mojito along with an abundance of mint.  No brainer.

Mojito Recipe

(Makes about 4)

1 c. simple syrup (boil 1 part sugar & 1 part water until the sugar dissolves)
1 c. lime juice
Muddle with a cup of mint & let steep for 15-20 minutes (or don’t)
Add 1 c. rum (I used 10 Cane….I really liked it)

Fill tall glass with ice.
Pour just under 1/2 full with above mixture.
Top with club soda.
Garnish with mint & a lime wedge.

If you aren’t up for making them yourself my favorite mojitos in the city are at Cuba Libre & Alma de Cuba (go figure).
