The popular mojito, a rum drink, gets its zing from fresh mint leaves. Mix these up and add zing to your next adult party.
  • 12 fresh mint leaves
  • 2 teaspoons granulated sugar
  • 1/2 lime, cut into 3 wedges
  • 2 tablespoons (1 ounce) rum
  • 1/2 cup club soda
  • 3/4 cup ice
1. Place mint leaves in a tall glass. Add sugar and lime wedges. Muddle well with a wooden spoon or a muddler (see Note).
2. Add remaining ingredients then stir well and serve immediately.

Note: Muddling means to mash the ingredients together. Muddlers are available at most kitchenware stores, but a wooden spoon works fine. If you'd like, garnish with an additional sprig of mint and/or a lime slice.
