Since the mojito became popular it has been served in so many different, and usually incorrect, ways. Try this recipe for an authentic Mojito.


  • 3 fresh mint sprigs
  • 1 ounce freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 1 ounce Simple Syrup
  • 2 ounces white rum
  • Ice
  • 1-1/2 ounces club soda, chilled


  1. Place 2 sprigs of mint, the lime juice and the simple syrup into a cocktail shaker. Lightly press on the mint with the back of a wooden spoon but do not crush. The mint’s natural oils will be released.
  2. Pour in the rum and add a handful of ice.
  3. Vigorously shake the mixture for about 20 seconds and then strain into a glass filled with ice.
  4. Top the cocktail with club soda and then garnish with the remaining sprig of mint.
