Me: "Is it ok if I post your mojito recipe on my blog?"
90 seconds pass . . .
Hubby: "Does that mean you want one tonight?"
Me: "Do you feel like one?"
Hubby: "I'll go pick some mint."
Tear 15 or so mint leaves into a cocktail shaker.
Add 2 oz. simple syrup.
Cut 1 lime into 1/8's - squeeze juice into shaker and then toss in lime wedges. Muddle together.
Pour 4 oz. rum into shaker; fill 1/2 full with ice and shake vigorously until shaker is very cold.
Divide into two glasses; top off with Sprite.
Add float of 1/4 oz. dark rum to each glass.
Makes two servings.
Summer in a glass. Enjoy!
