Short & Sweet Sunday - Mojito!

This is the reason I started growing mint in my garden.  This is an extremely refreshing cocktail, perfect for a hot summer day!


I usually use a cocktail shaker for this, but it's easy to muddle the ingredients in a glass.  


Use a handful of mint.


Sprinkle with a tablespoon of sugar.


Muddle with a wooden spoon.  Muddling releases the oils and flavour from the mint.


Add the juice of a lime and mix to dissolve the sugar.


And a shot of white rum.


Fill the glass with ice and top with club soda.
Drink on the deck with a good book.  Refreshing!
