The mojito is a simple mixed drink of rum, mint, lemon, sugar, and club soda. This cocktail is one of the world’s popular cocktails.
2 cups lemonade
1/2 superfine sugar
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice (about 1 lemon)
1/2 cup firmly packed fresh mint leaves
4 cups club soda, chilled
2 cups white rum
1/2 tsp salt
fresh mint sprigs, garnishes
1. In a blender, process the lemonade, superfine sugar and lemon juice. Add club soda and rum. Stir to combine.
2. Using a wooden spoon, muddle mint leaves against bottom and and sides of a glass pitcher to release flavors. Leaves will be bruised and torn. Serve immediately. Garnish, if desired.
Enjoy this sparkling cooler all summer long!
