I had seen this drink mentioned lately as being the "in" drink. Tonight I decided to try one at a restaurant. Woooeeee! I'm hooked! It's fresh mint leaves and a little sugar mashed together, then topped with white rum and club soda. I'm going to make these in the hot Arizona evenings. I'll be the most popular RV at the Lodge. It's soooo gooood! Signed Shparkle. . . . .Shorry, forgot the 3 Tablespoons of Lime Juice..hic....

Sparkle,
This sounds delicious, just the thing for hot Utah evenings as well. When I looked up the Utah liquor regulations, thought for a minute I'd have to bring my own supply of rum, tequila, etc., but see that Kanab has a state-run liquor store. "Live well, laugh often, love much."

I don't know how the night is going to end. I got all the ingrediants for Mojitos and made my first one. Hmmm, it wasn't the same as the restaurant one. so, I'll have to have another and tinker with the proportions, and if that doesn't work, keep on trying. 1984 Class A Allegro(Miss Piggy) Jean the Scot Bogie the Pit (rescued) Shona the Calico Cat

Sparkle,
I pulled this off the Bacardi website. But, it sounds like you're having too much fun experimenting. . . . -------------------- Bacardi Mojito (say 'mohito,' and enjoy!)
An easy mojito recipe to liven up your evening:
1.5 oz BACARDI Rum 12 fresh spearmint leaves 1/2 lime 7 oz club soda 2 tbsp. simple syrup (or 4 tsp. sugar)
The coolest summer drink recipes from the hottest bars always include Bacardi mojitos. Follow us step by step through our no-fail mojito cocktail recipe and mix up the sparkle for your party.
For the smoothest summer cocktails, gently crush mint leaves and lightly squeeze lime in a cool tall glass. Pour sweet syrup to cover and fill glass with ice. Add Bacardi Rum, club soda, and stir your emerging mojito well. Garnish with a lime wedge and a few sprigs of mint. The best bar recipes then add these essential steps: toast, sip, and enjoy fine Bacardi mojitos with your friends.
"Live well, laugh often, love much."

A couple of years ago a few of us girls from the jeep club were experimenting with Lemon Drop Martinis. All I can say is, good thing the RV was in line of sight or I probably would have ended up sleeping under the picnic table!! LOL!
Those mojitos sound good, may have to try one on the cruise. Learn to laugh at trouble now,or you won't have anything to laugh at when you're old! Sharon & Sam the Cat with Attitude

Chris, as it turned out, by the third one I found out how much sugar to add. I'm going to make or buy Simple syrup, I think it would blend better. I also read that you can do it as a slushy by blending it. I just wish it was warmer so I had a good excuse. Let me add I had no trouble falling asleep last night. Now how about a good wine cooler recipe. We have to get ready for summer after all. 1984 Class A Allegro(Miss Piggy) Jean the Scot Bogie the Pit (rescued) Shona the Calico Cat

This looks like the exact same syrup for making lemonade.
So, Jean, how did you feel after three of them last night?
How to Make Simple Syrup From Colleen Graham, Simple syrup, or sugar syrup, is very easy to make and is used in many cocktails such as Jell-O Shots, Daiquiris and Hurricanes to add volume and sweetness. With this recipe you can make as small or as large a batch as you wish and store it in the refrigerator in a well sealed bottle indefinitely. INGREDIENTS: 2 parts sugar 1 part water PREPARATION: Bring the water to a boil. Dissolve the sugar into the boiling water. Once the sugar is dissolved completely, remove the pan from the heat. Allow to cool completely and bottle. "Live well, laugh often, love much."

Chris, that certainly sounds easy.
Sparkle, I want to know where you found the fresh spearmint leaves? Smiling is contagious - try it!

No hangover in the morning! The only thing that has ever given me a hangover is those cream based drinks like Grasshoppers. Today I'll make up a batch of Simple Syrup. Beth, I found the fresh Spearmint leaves in the Herb section at Walmarts. I've got 3 or 4 stems that I'm trying to root. 1984 Class A Allegro(Miss Piggy) Jean the Scot Bogie the Pit (rescued) Shona the Calico Cat

Here's a simple but very refreshig drink for those days when when you are hot, tired and parched. Try half cranberry juice and half Sierra Mist or other lemon-lime soda. I'm diabetic, so I use lite cranberry and diet soda. Works for me!
