Mommy’s (Mean) Mojitos

1) In an 8 oz glass, put:

  • 8-10 mint leaves with 1-2 bits of stem (1-2 inches long)
  • the juice of ½ of a lime (squeezed out) and the lime rind too
  • 1-2 tbsp cane sugar (I like less sugar, but some folks like more)

2) Use a smasher (they probably have a better name – looks like the pestle from a mortar and pestle) to smash all of those ingredients together. I put my hand over the glass while I do it, or stuff goes everywhere.

3) Fill the glass with ice.

4) Add 2 oz white rum (or 1 white and 1 dark) over the ice – 2 oz is what makes them so deadly :o)

5) Top with club soda and a ¼ slice of lime.
