Bacardi Mojito

My take on a Bacardi Mojito.  A lot of people like to use simple syrup but I prefer the raw sugar because it helps grind the mint to release the flavor.  (Hint: This is a great excuse to buy a muddler.)

Serves One

Bacardi Mojito
12 mint leaves
1/2 a lime
3 tsp sugar
1 1/2 oz Bacardi white rum
Sparkling Water

1. Quarter the half a lime (if you do it hamburger style instead of hotdog they juice better when muddling)

2. Add the lime, mint, and sugar to a highball glass and muddle until limes are juiced

3. Add rum and stir

4. Top glass with cubed ice and then sparkling water

5. Stir with a bar spoon. (Hint: If you put the spoon to the bottom and then rub the stem between your hands like you’re trying to start a fire it works really well.)

6. Add a straw and enjoy.
