A Really Good Mojito

Tony is King of Mojitos . . . but he’s still keeping his recipe top secret. So, when I’m not able to enjoy sun and Tony’s mojitos on their Sonoma courtyard, I use this recipe.

INGREDIENTS:
10 to 12 fresh mint leaves
Juice of 1 lime
1 1/2 ounces simple syrup, or 2 to 3 tablespoons ultrafine sugar
Ice
2 ounces Bacardi Limon rum
Soda water
Lime wedge and sprig of mint for garnish

INSTRUCTIONS: Put the mint in a pint glass, then add the lime juice and simple syrup. Gently mash with a muddler or the handle of a wooden spoon until the mint begins to bruise and its essence rises from the glass.

Put ice in the glass. Add the rum, then fill with soda water. Stir with a long spoon, lifting the mint so it disperses throughout the drink.
Garnish with the wedge of lime and sprig of mint. YUM!!!!!!!!
Serves 1
