In honor of Spring (on it’s way), I made us Mojito’s this weekend.  So fresh.  So delicious.  So Spring-like. 

And, I can’t wait to drink one out on the patio or (preferrably) on the lake.


Mojitos’s (the way I like them)
6 or 7 mint leaves
1 large spoonful of simple syrup (equal parts sugar and water – boiled)
1 half large lime, sqeezed
**Muddle the mint, syrup and lime (you can use a wooden spoon)
Add three-four count of Bicardi light
Add ice
**Shake it like hell!  (Either in a shaker of two glasses)
Pour all contents in a glass and add a two count of soda water and a sprig of mint!  Mmm.
