Mojito

Mojito cocktail with rum and mint

We didn’t think we liked the Mojito the first few times we had it. It was watery, little smashed-up mint bits got stuck in our teeth – overall, a sad affair. It wasn’t until we had a properly-made Mojito that we understood the true magic of it.

Made right, the drink is strained to remove the muddled bits, and a new sprig of mint is added at the end for the drinker to bury their nose in. It’s heaven in a glass, man.

Ingredients

Instructions

Muddle the lime wedges, sugar, and mint leaves in a shaker until the sugar is dissolved. Add ice and rum, shake just a few times to mix, and strain into an ice-filled glass. Top with sparkling water, slap a sprig of mint and garnish the drink with it, along with fresh lime slices and more mint leaves arranged artfully inside the glass.

Cocktail Party app on tablets and phones

Get the App

The Cocktail Party app puts this drink – and hundreds more – in your pocket, and tells you what you can make from the ingredients you have at home. It's the best $3.99 you'll ever spend on a drink.

Really Good App

We downloaded the app after seeing it as one of the top posts on /r/cocktails, and we've been playing around with it and adding our ingredients to the list. While it's not an all inclusive list of ingredients (missing some creme de ), it's a solid overall app and tosses out some truly spectacular recipes based on what you have in your liquor cabinet. Minor quibbles for an otherwise fantastic application!
