You don’t need complicated recipes or obscure ingredients to make an amazing cocktail at home. Go back to the basics with a refreshing mojito. (It has only five ingredients and there’s no shaker required.) Here, how to make this Cuban classic on your own.

What You Need:
 - 10 fresh mint leaves
 - 2 tablespoons sugar
 - ½ a lime, cut in half
 - Ice
 - 1½ ounces white rum
 - Sparkling water

Step 1: Place the mint leaves in a glass and gently muddle with a pestle to release the plant’s fragrant oils. 

Step 2: Add the sugar and lime and muddle again.

Step 3: Top with ice before pouring in the rum and sparkling water.
