    Ice cubes in two little glasses
    Hot water to dissolve sugar
    Rum (I prefer dark)

    Pour over ice. ENJOYYYYYY!

    Fresh mint!! I just bought a plant this morning from the Farmer's Market AND, i just discovered there's fresh mint growing in my backyard. I think all that is a sign that I must make a mojito in the very near future (like, tomorrow) !

    That looks simply beautiful!

    Is your original recipe for two servings or for one?

    It makes a double, in a small glass. If you're only one person drinking, put half of it in the fridge to chill… awaiting your second go-round!

    I've almost stripped my mint plant bare... Think I need to give him a break from Mojito Duty!
    LOL!
