There is something about a mojito that just screams summer to me…it is just so refreshing and delicious. This twist on a classic mojito is even better, in my opinion. Fresh ginger and lemon juice is muddled with some agave syrup and tons of mint leaves to create the base of this cocktail. And if you don’t drink alcohol, this is really good without the rum too!
- 8 mint leaves + sprig to garnish
- 2 tbsp lemon juice
- 2 tsp minced ginger
- 2 tsp agave syrup
- 1 ½ oz white rum
- 4 oz club soda
Muddle the mint leaves, lemon juice, ginger and agave for a minute so all the flavors infuse.
Put a couple of ice cubes in a cocktail shaker and pour the lemon mixture over the ice, add rum and shake a few times.
Strain the mixture into a glass filled with a few ice cubes. Add the club soda and serve, garnished with a sprig of mint and a lemon wedge.
