    Mojito

    Mojito



    I'm lucky and have a fresh mint plant... Which beckons me to make Mojitos alllllll the time!

    Sprig of Mint
    Sugar to taste (one of my few sweet moments, 2 T!)
    Big lime
    Ice cubes in two little glasses
    Hot water to dissolve sugar
    Rum (I prefer dark)

    Bruise the mint in the sugar granules.

    Squeeze in lime and then Hot (tap hot) water in sugar to make about 3/4 c

    Add 1/4 c RUM
    (Dear Hubby likes the mint bits, daughter doesn't. Skim if you've a picky person, leave in for authenticity and breath freshening when the alcohol discussions ensue...)

    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!

    LOL!
