The Perfect Mojito

10–15 fresh mint leaves
Juice of one large lime
2 teaspoons sugar
1.5 ounces of rum
Club soda
Highball glass

Makes one drink.

Place sugar and fresh squeezed lime juice in a chilled glass and stir. Add the mint to the lime sugar mixture and muddle it to bring out the oils and flavor – be careful not to tear the mint leaves. Add rum, stir, and fill with ice. Top with soda water. Serve in a tall highball glass. Garnish with mint leaves or a lime wedge or with the classic sugar cane stick.
