Ingredients:
– 10 Fresh mint leaves
– 3 ounces of rum
– 2 table spoons of cane sugar
– 1/2 of a lime (quartered)
– Ice
– Club soda
– Sugar cane

The Jump Off:
– In your shaker, muddle (I hope you know what this means) your sugar & mint but don’t pulverize it.

– Once your mint & sugar are set, muddle your limes in then toss in your rum & ice.

Shake! Shake! Shake! Shake! Shake! Shake! Shake! Shake! Shake! Shake! Shake! Shake! Shake! Shake! Shake! Shake! Shake! Shake! Shake! Shake! Shake! Shake! Shake! Shake! Shake! Shake! Shake! Shake! Shake! Shake! Shake that shit up!

– Pour your mixture into a high or low ball glass (high ball glass pictured) fill the remainder of your glass with club soda. Note, if you go with a lowball, you’ll be in the zone much faster because there will be less room for club soda.

– Stir & garnish with sugar cane & a sprig of mint.

– Sip, enjoy, rinse glass then repeat until you forget your name.

On a somewhat related note:
– The name Mojito comes from the African word “mojo,” which means to place a little spell. The exact origins of this tasty Cuban beverage are unclear as some say that it was formulated by African slaves while others claim that hero slaver Sir Francis Drake came up with it all on his own. Hmmmmm.

Recommendations:
– If you need a muddler, I HIGHLY reccomend the PUG muddler. I can’t imagine not hacing it in my cocktail gear collection!

– My favorite shaker is the Boston shaker from WMF it really helps you to shake some shit up!
