Since then, I have ordered mojitos in restaurants, but none have compared. Usually, the bartender uses artificial lime juice (which is nothing like fresh lime juice) and is very cheap with the mint!
So, I learned that if I want a mojito, I need to make it myself.
I wanted to make the drink so that my girls could enjoy the flavors as well....
So, I made a simple syrup (equal parts sugar and water cooked until the sugar is melted) mixed with fresh mint, fresh lime juice and club soda.
delicious. delicious. delicious.
