I love mojitos! They are absolutely, hands down, one of the most refreshing, delicious drinks ever. They are pretty simple to make - minus the muddling (that's the only hard part). I got some Mint Herb Crystals from Fresh Origins and knew they would be perfect for adding an extra mint kick to a mojito. Here's what to do.
mint leaves // lime // light rum // sugar // mint rimming crystals
For each drink, rim a high ball glass with the mint herb crystals by using the juice from the lime to get the crystals to stick.
Add 1 Tablespoon of sugar, 1.5 ounces rum, a handful of mint leaves, and 1/2 a lime to each glass. Muddle well until the sugar dissolves a bit and the mint leaves are well bruised.
Add 3-4 large ice cubes, then fill with club soda.
