To make a Mojito, start by cutting a lime into wedges. Place the lime wedges and a handful of fresh mint leaves in a glass and muddle them together to release the flavors. Add a spoonful of sugar to the glass and muddle again until the sugar dissolves.
Next, fill the glass with ice cubes and pour in 2 ounces of rum. Stir the ingredients together until well combined. Top the glass with soda water and give it a gentle stir.
Garnish the Mojito with a sprig of fresh mint and a lime wedge. Serve immediately and enjoy!
Best served in a Parfait Glass.

A mojito is traditionally made of five ingredients: rum, sugar (traditionally sugar cane juice), lime, carbonated water and mint. Its combination of sweetness and refreshing citrus and spearmint flavors are intended to mask the potent kick of the rum, and have made this clear cocktail a popular summer drink. Many hotels in Havana also add Angostura bitters to cut the sweetness of the mojito; while a popular variation, it is not the original version created in La Bodeguita del Medio.
To make a Mojito, juice from a lime is added to sugar and mint leaves in a tall glass. The mixture is then gently mashed repeatedly with a muddler. Crushed ice is then added, followed by rum and topped off with club soda.
The word mojito is derived from the diminutive of the word mojo.
