I hate when I order a drink and I get a premixed, sugar loaded, concoction. I prefer my drinks with natural ingredients and minimizing on fillers or premixers. Here is my take on the summer favorite, The Mojito!
2 Parts rum
2 Parts simple syrup
1 Part lime juice
4 Mint leaves
1/2 cup water boiled with 1 table spoon sugar. Let cool.
Mix rum, syrup, lime juice in rocks glass. Muddle mint. Add ice. Enjoy!
If you don't have fresh mint from the garden, think about planting some it grows like a weed.
