Bottoms Up // Mojitos with Homemade Simple Syrup

Sometimes I feel a little weird ordering a mojito when we’re out and about. I dunno, maybe they seem kind of cliché to me, or they got really trendy and I feel a bit cheesy asking a bartender to make me one. But making them at home for ourselves is a whole different story! I know. There is no rhyme or reason to my theories, but I do know that if you hand Mr. Lovely some mint and a muddler he makes magic. So here’s his recipe.

  • mint
  • limes
  • sugar
  • water
  • clear rum
  • seltzer
  • cocktail shaker
  • muddler
  • ice

First, make your simple syrup. Use a sugar-water ratio of 2:1. Bring water to a boil in a saucepan. As soon as the water starts to boil, turn off the heat and add the sugar. Stir until fully dissolved. Let cool in the pan, transfer to a sealed container, and store in the refrigerator.

Now on to the good stuff! In a shaker, muddle a few sprigs of mint and half a lime, sliced.

Once muddled, pour one part simple syrup and two parts rum into the shaker. Add ice and shake.

    1. It will keep for a couple of months in the fridge. You will want to throw it out when it starts to get cloudy. If you want it to last longer, you can add a shot of vodka to the mix and it will last much longer.
