I don't know why but it seems to rain every Friday night! Honestly! I needed a refreshing cocktail to brighten this dreary night! So I decided on a Mojito. It is one of my favorite cocktails to order when we go to the Riviera Maya in Mexico. A Mojito is such a light and refreshing drink with the crisp taste of lime! Perfect for a hot summer night!
12 fresh mint leaves
1/2 lime, quartered
2 tbsp simple syrup (please click the link below for the recipe)
2 oz. Rum
Can of lime seltzer or club soda
Muddle the mint leaves and lime quarters together with a spoon in a tall glass.
Fill the glass with ice.
Pour in the rum.
Add the simple syrup and fill the glass with seltzer water or club soda.
Give a good stir and you are ready to enjoy your refreshing Mojito.
Note: This recipe makes one cocktail

One sip brings me back to the beaches of the Riviera Maya! You will want to keep making these Mojitos all summer long! Cheers!
