Mojitos – as heard on Dishing with Kathy Casey on KOMO

Mojitos are  the classic cocktail originating from Cuba. Now one of the most ordered cocktails. Shake up one of these refreshing drinks for your next get-together.

Classic Mojito
Makes 1 drink

3 large sprigs fresh mint
2 ounces white rum
3/4 ounce fresh lime juice
3/4 ounce Simple Syrup*

Tear the mint sprigs and drop into a cocktail shaker. With a muddler, press the mint to release its flavors. Fill the shaker with ice. Measure in the rum, lime juice, and simple syrup. Cap and shake vigorously. Pour into a large glass. Top with soda water.

*Simple Syrup- one cup sugar and one cup water brought to a boil and cooled – keep refrigerated for up to 1 month.  © 2008 Kathy Casey Inc.
