The Mojito Cocktail

I love the Mint Julep, so I instantly fell in love with this Cuban classic, The Mojito (Moe-HE-toe), which is similar.

The Mojito

1 Tbsp Simple Syrup
4 Mint Leaves
1/4 oz Fresh Lime Juice
2 Oz. White Rum (I use Bacardi)
4 Oz. Club Soda
Crushed Ice

In a cocktail glass Muddle the Mint leaves with the simple syrup (See Note*). Add the lime juice and the Rum, stir well. Cover with Crushed Ice, add the Club Soda, and stir gently, trying to keep the mint leaves on the bottom of the glass. Serve garnished with a lime wedge and a sprig of mint.

*Note - Simple Syrup is equal parts (by volume) water and sugar, cooked just until the sugar disolves. I make a 1 Cup batch and keep it in a squeeze bottle in the refrigerator.

Makes 1 Cocktail.

Hello Danno,

One of the sections in my article directory is recipes ... while looking for blogs on blueberry recipes, I discovered your The Mojito Cocktail article.

Most people believe the best content on the internet is created by bloggers ... original content, experiences and opinions. Nothing to sell and no hidden agendas!

As someone who appears to be interested in blueberry recipes, I am sure you will find our recipes section to be interesting. I am continually searching for bloggers to submit articles and assist me to expand the directory to all our benefit. By contributing, you not only get the recognition of being an author, but also knowing your submission will be seen by many hundreds of internet surfers. The pride and satisfaction of seeing your article published in a prestige directory is hard to beat.

Not all of us are born with the talent to write to high standards of literacy ... as a consequence, a lot of bloggers don't try to have their articles published.

I like an informal style of writing that matches your personality and fits in with your article content. I welcome articles that are uniquely based on your personal knowledge, experiences and opinions. All I request is that your content does not contain vulgar language, incite hatred or generally offensive.

Without any commitments ... please pop over and browse my blog articles directory for yourself.

Kind Regards
Mary
