Mojito

This original Cuban cocktail is a sure crowd pleaser that looks incredibly complicated, but is essentially fool-proof.  Consisting of base ingredients of rum, lime juice, sugar, mint and soda water, the ability to customize this cocktail to your particular tastes is essential.  Start with a basic white rum, but don’t hesitate to experiment with a flavored rum or add even some additional muddled fruit or sweeteners.

2 oz White Rum
2 Lime Quarters
.75-1.25 oz Simple Syrup
5-10 mint leaves
Soda Water

In a highball glass, squeeze two lime quarters with mint and simple syrup.  Muddle heavily.  Add rum, top with ice and soda water and stir thoroughly.  Try coconut rum in this recipe for additional tropical flavors.
