El Pequeño’s Mojito

El Pequeño's Mojito with mint leaves, mint syrup, light rum, lime juice, and sparkling water

El Pequeño Bar in Montreal serves this twist on a Mojito, a classic intensified by the inclusion of mint syrup. Homemade mint syrup is best – but if using commercial mint syrup, try to find one without green dye added.

Ingredients

Instructions

Gently muddle the mint at the bottom of a tall glass along with the syrup, taking care not to tear any little pieces from the mint. Add the rum and lime juice, add some crushed ice, and top with the sparkling water. Add more crushed ice to fill the glass, and garnish with lime wheels and more fresh mint.
