  • Leaves from about 10 sprigs of mint and some more for garnish at serving
  • 8 ounces fresh lime juice — please don’t use the bottled kind of lime juice.
  • 8 ounces simple syrup recipe below
  • 16 ounces white rum
  • 1 cup of water
  • 1 cup of sugar


  1. In a beautiful pitcher, add mint. lime juice and simple syrup and muddle it with a muddler or big spoon. Don’t go kung-fu on it, Be light and gentle on the mint. Add the rum.
  2. You can make this a few hours early and put in the fridge.
  3. Serve the mojito in a tall glass over crushed — yes, only crushed, ice — with a sprig of mint and top with a splash of sparkling water — if you want. I don’t tend to use the sparkling water.
  4. If you really want to impress, add a slice of sugar cane.
  5. And, of course, you can add more or less of anything to suit your taste — from the sugar, to the lime, to the rum.
  6. Simple Syrup Recipe
  7. Combine water and sugar in a small pan and heat on medium until the sugar dissolves. Let cool to room temperature.
  8. Simple Syrup can be kept in a glass container in the fridge for up to a month.
