Ingredients
 

  • 10 mint leaves
  • 8 oz. club soda
  • juice of one lime
  • 2 tsp.-1 tbsp. agave syrup
  • ice

Instructions
 

  • Roll your lime back and forth on the counter to break up the membranes to make it easier to juice. Slice it in half.
  • Juice your lime directly into a Cocktail Shaker or a tall glass.
  • Add your mint leaves.
  • With a Muddler or the back of a wooden spoon muddle your mint and lime together. You want to press on the leaves to express the mint flavor and infuse it with the lime juice.
  • Muddle until the mint leaves are broken up and fragrant but not so much that it becomes a paste.
  • Now add your agave and club soda. Stir or shake the mixture well.
  • Taste and adjust sweetness if needed. I tend to like a sweeter mojito and use the entire tablespoon to sweeten mine.
  • Strain your Mojito over ice and garnish with a slice of lime and more mint.
  • Enjoy!

Notes

  • If you do not have a Cocktail Shaker you can use a mason jar with a lid to shake your Mojito. i did so and it worked well. 
  • A traditional Mojito is not very sweet. If you do not prefer a sweeter drink you should be fine with the 2 tsp. of Agave. If you like things a bit sweeter like me go for the 1 tbsp.
