Paul and I have enjoyed our new happy our {at home} tradition. Last night’s mojitos were incredibly yummy and refreshing!

In a martini shaker or large glass, muddle mint, lime, and simple syrup* for 20-30 seconds {until you can smell the mint}. 

Add rum, stir, and pour into your favorite cocktail glass. Top with crushed ice or small cubes and club soda.

Garnish with a mint leaf and a lime slice. 

ENJOY! Great with fish tacos, fried calamari, and blackened chicken. 

*Make your own simple syrup with equal parts sugar and water; dissolve over heat then cool.
