Adding freshly grated ginger to classic Mojitos made with fresh mint gives this summer favorite even more intense flavor and pizzazz.  

Ingredients

  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 (4-inch) piece fresh ginger, peeled and grated
  • 2 cups tightly packed fresh mint leaves
  • 1 (750-milliliter) bottle white rum
  • 1-1/2 cups freshly squeezed lime juice
  • Ice
  • 2-1/4 cups club soda, chilled
  • 12 fresh mint sprigs

Directions

  1. Place the sugar, water and ginger in a small saucepan over high heat and bring to a boil stirring frequently.
  2. Cook the mixture for 5 minutes and then remove from heat. Stir in the fresh mint leaves and then let the mixture sit for 1 hour to allow flavors to infuse.
  3. Stain the syrup into a glass container, discarding any remaining solids, and then pour in the rum and lime juice. Stir, cover and place in the refrigerator to chill.
  4. Fill a tall glass with ice and then add 1/2 cup of the prepared Mojito mix. Top the drink with some club soda and lightly stir to combine the mixture.
  5. Serve garnished with a sprig of mint.
