Mojitos and summer go together like ... mojitos and summer. This Cuban classic is light, bright, and refreshing, which is the perfect complement for our ever-versatile Mint Julep mixer.
It's also just fun to make. Very hands-on. We like crushed ice for its cooling and diluting properties. Gotta stay hydrated, amigos.
Experiment by adding bitters to cut the sweetness. Use different kinds of rum. Or substitute tequila blanco for a Mexican Mojito.
2 oz. White Rum
.5 oz. Fresh Lime Juice (4-6 wedges)
Muddle the lime wedges and Mint Julep syrup in the bottom of a Highball or Collins glass and then pack it with crushed ice. Pour in the rum and give it a stir. Top with soda and garnish with fresh mint.
