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
- 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.
