Today I have a Try It Out that you are gonna love!! I love mojitos!! They are just delicious in my book, whether you add alcohol or not. I have been working on perfecting my mojito recipe (not that it's super original), but it is just PERFECT for me. Hope you enjoy this refreshing and tasty treat.
Make in a pint canning jar (that's how I measure perfectly!):
1 oz simple syrup
2 oz clear rum
5-8 mint leaves
Mix the simple syrup and mint leaves together at the bottom of the jar smashing a bit. This breaks the leaves up and releases the flavor. Add the juice from 1 lime (you can add the remaining lime too). Add the rum. Fill glass jar to the top with ice then add the club soda to the top. Drink with a paper straw (trust me, it just tastes better!) If you don't drink alcohol, just make it the same without adding the rum. It is super good either way.
I hope you enjoy this amazing drink. It is perfect for spring and summer while enjoying the backyard, the pool, or the lake!!
