The Perfect Mojito


Refreshing and relaxing, a mojito is the perfect way to unwind from a long day in the yard. The best part? Mint from your own garden. Enjoy this simple and classic cocktail by following the recipe below!


  • Cocktail shaker
  • Hawthorne or julep strainer (optional additional mesh strainer)
  • Bar jigger
  • Collins glass, pint, or mason jar


  • 1 ½ oz of white rum
  • 2 fresh sprigs of mint
  • ½ oz of simple syrup
  • ¾ oz of fresh lime juice
  • Lime wheel (for garnishing)
  • Club soda
  • Ice


  1. In cocktail shaker, add rum, simple syrup and lime.
  2. Taking the one sprig of mint leaves in hand, "smack" them between your palms and toss into the shaker. Add ice.
  3. Shake the ingredients together vigorously, until the shaker ices over.
  4. Strain over ice into a tall glass (option to double strain with a mesh strainer if you do not want bits of mint in your cocktail). Top with soda.
  5. Garnish with a lime wheel and the second sprig of mint. Enjoy!
