Do you think it would be okay to substitute the sugar with Agave nectar? I'm trying to stay away from sugar, but I LOVE mojitos.
Yes!! Absolutely! You probably wouldn't even have to add much at all! Try it and see what you think!
if you're going to muddle the mint leaves in the glass, add a little sugar to it too. the sugar is an abrasive and will grind up the leaves very well<br />
Forgot to mention this... good instructible<br />
<p>great tip</p>
<p>Great recipe, worked well for me. Though it was a bit too sweet, I'll do 2 parts sugar to 3 parts water in the syrup next time. Thanks!</p>
I was in Souther France a few years ago and had a mojito very similar to this one. The difference was the bar owner put sugar crystals of some sort in the very bottom of the glass. A simple addition and it was delicious. I'm going to try this recipe with her twist. Sounds delicious!

I'm a newbee and this recipe worked for me, thank you so much! I will also head the other advice... thanks again! <br>
i use a few drops of Angostura, try it !
Here is one improvement. Instead of molding the mint leaves in the glass, clap them two or three times in your hands. Enough flavor and aroma will be released. While drinking the mojito, there won't be small pieces of mojito leaves in the straw, too. <br/><br/>See <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.ideas-smart.com/node/34">The Perfect Mojito</a> for more details and advice.<br/>
