Delicious Fresh Mojito Recipe

This Delicious Fresh Mojito recipe is the perfect refreshing drink after a long hot day or as a tropical treat for chilly days when you need something to warm your thoughts. I was not a huge fan of Mojitos until I had some with a friend at a lovely restaurant in Costa Rica. This restaurant makes them to perfection, so I came home with a desire to get as close to the flavor of their version as I could. This is what I came up with and we love it. This would go great along side this Chicken And Peppers recipe  or with a snack of chips dipped in this Mango Salsa Recipe we posted about. Once in a while hubby and I like to meet at the table in the evening and have one together while we tell each other the highlights of our day.

As with all recipes most of the fun is playing around with the ingredients to suit your taste and make it your own.  This is the version I like best, but you might like to change up the measurements on the lime, sugar and mint to get that perfect flavor that suits your taste. Some people like to use less on the ingredients to make a smaller size drink. I like to drink from my favorite mason jar with a straw, so I tend to adjust recipes to accommodate that. We would love to read your ideas about this recipe, so please be sure to scroll down and post them in the comments section below.  We really have fun making and eating the the recipes we post here. Hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

Here is a list of ingredients for this Mojito Recipe:

  • 2 ounces lime juice, about one lime (quartered and squeezed fresh)
  • 1 Tablespoon superfine sugar
  • 4-6 fresh mint leaves (can be found in produce section of most grocery stores)
  • 2-3 ounces white rum (your preference)
  • Club soda
  • Collins glass or 1 pint mason jar

 

Steps to make Mojito Recipe:

  • In a Collins glass (or pint jar), stir fresh squeezed lime juice with 1 tablespoon superfine sugar until sugar is disolved.
  • Add the mint leaves, mushing them against the side of the glass, just to release a little flavor, but not too much so it does not become overpowering.
  • Fill glass 2/3 full with cracked ice.
  • Pour 2 ounces of rum over ice.
  • Place a piece of the squeezed-out lime shell in the glass.
  • Top off with club soda.
  • Enjoy!
