Step 1: Get Your Ingredients!
Rum (We use Bacardi in this recipe)
Step 2: Make the Simple Syrup...its simple really.
To make the simple syrup, dissolve sugar in water by heating it up in a saucepan on the stove. Use equal parts sugar and water. In this recipe we will use 1 cup water and 1 cup sugar. (If you wish to makes more mojito's, increase the ratio). Once the sugar has dissolved in the water, take it off the heat and add about 15 mint leaves and let them steep. Let the simple syrup cool. And remember, the longer it steeps, the more flavor your mojito will have.
Step 3: Squeeze Your Limes
Note: Keep in mind that each individual mojito usually needs 1-2 limes depending on size.
Tip: Roll your limes on the counter before you squeeze them to get the juices flowing!
