2. Mojito

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup of ice cubes
  • 10 fresh mint leaves
  • white rum (1 shot per glass)
  • 1/2 cup club soda
  • white sugar
  • lime cut into wedges

Place mint leaves and 1 lime wedge into a sturdy glass. Use a muddler to crush the mint and lime to release the mint oils and lime juice. Add 2 more lime wedges and the sugar, and muddle again to release the lime juice. Do not strain the mixture. Fill the glass almost to the top with ice. Pour the rum over the ice, then fill the glass with carbonated water. Stir and add more sugar to taste. Extra points if you use a lime wedge to garnish the glass.
