The Best Mojito Recipe

 Well, we have had one of the busiest weekends ever. It is my turn to write the blog this week, and this is the recipe that a lot of people have asked about. I think summer is just about here and this should get you ready.
 
The Best Mojito Recipe
 
Muddle 1/2 a lime with 16 mint leaves in a tall glass (spearmint works great).
 
Add 1 1/2 oz. Rum and 2 tbsp. Simple Syrup
Fill glass with ice cubes and top with club soda.
 
Garnish with a slice of lime and a mint sprig. 
 
Enjoy!
 
Simple Syrup
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup water
Boil on stove until dissolved. I keep mine in a jar in the fridge.
 
We have lots of varieties of mint at Jensen’s. Try them out and see which one you like best for your Mojito - Pineapple, Apple, Spearmint and Peppermint. I have also used Citrus Rum. 
 
See you soon,
Jennifer
