Let me start this out by confessing that I LOVE mojitos. Love them. Love them like I want to marry them one day so I cannot believe that I haven’t actually posted a recipe for one! I have made them at home, but only this week did I take it upon myself to really think about making a great mojito, not just a good one.

Mojitos

Mojitos are one of the most popular rum drinks out there. This is a classic mojito recipe, but I prefer to use honey simple syrup in mine, which adds another taste level to them!

Mojito Ingredients

7-8 leaves of fresh mint
1/2 lime cut into 5-6 wedges
2 tablespoons mint honey simple syrup or to taste I like mine sweet
7-8 large ice cubes
1 1/2 fluid ounces white rum
1/2 cup club soda
large cocktail glass

How to Make a Mojito

1. Place mint leaves and 3 lime wedges into a sturdy glass. Crush the mint and lime
to release the mint oils and lime juice. (the back of a spoon works if you don’t
have a muddler.) Add 2 more lime wedges and the honey syrup and muddle again
to release the lime juice.
2. Fill the glass almost to the top with ice.Pour the rum over the ice.Fill the glass with
club soda.
3. Stir, taste, and add more honey syrup if needed.Garnish with the remaining lime
wedge.

Tips & Tricks for Making Mojitos

  1. The secret here is the mint honey simple syrup. Oh man…does that stuff just take it over the edge. I have always had it in the back of my mind to make a honey mojito but the food muses have outdone themselves this time with that spur of the moment inspiration.
  2. I cannot stress it enough: the simple syrup is EASY. I am so serious here folks. It takes three ingredients and 5 minutes. Then you have a jar of mint honey simple syrup in the fridge for mojitos. I suggest doubling the recipe, I will from now on, my first batch is almost gone!
  3. On to the the drink. It has slightly less mint leaves than usual because of the syrup and you can adjust to taste. Usually you have around 10 leaves in the glass, but seven was great for me. You do have to make sure to muddle (which basically means squishing everything to get the juices out) and you will have to add syrup to taste.

I like mine sweet and with this syrup..oh. Such minty goodness! So you absolutely MUST make these and you MUST let me know what you think!

Love you guys more than mojitos, (most days)

    My name is Noman, I never thought I will smile again, My husband left me with two kids for one year, All effort to bring him back failed I thought I’m not going to see him again not until I met a lady called Jesse who told me about a spell caster called Dr.okoro, She gave me his email address and mobile number and I contacted him and he assured me that within 48hours my husband will come back to me, In less than 48hours my husband came back started begging for forgiveness saying it is the devils work, so I’m still surprise till now about this miracle,i couldn’t conceive but as soon as the spell was cast,i became pregnant and gave birth to my third child(Michelle) if you need any assistance from him you can contact him via:email [email protected]
