Refreshing Mojito Drink

From Krisann:

This is truly one of my favorite summertime drinks.   The combination of fresh mint and lime are amazing.  Cool, refreshing and delicious.  This drink will have you planting some mint on your patio or in your garden.  (Please note that if you plant mint in your yard it will spread like crazy).

Ingredients:

  • 10 – 15 fresh mint leaves (torn into pieces)
  • 1/2 lime, cut into 4 wedges
  • 2 tablespoons  simple syrup
  • ice cubes
  • 1  fluid ounces Barcardi rum
  • 1/2 fluid ounces triple sec
  • 1/2 cup club soda
 Place mint leaves, lime wedges, simple syrup, ice and rum into a shaker.  Shake for a minute or so (this is instead of muddling) Fill the glass almost to the top with ice. Pour the rum over the ice, and fill the glass with carbonated water. Stir, taste, and add more sugar if desired. Garnish with the remaining lime wedge.
