This weekend has been the official start to summer...well...for me anyways. There is nothing like soaking up some sun, brunch and with friends and my daughter Paige splashing me from her pool as I sip my mojito. I swear I could live in the sunshine year round.
1 teaspoon superfine sugar (or simple syrup)
2 springs fresh mint
Squeeze fresh lime juice
2 ounces light rum
Splash club soda
Place sugar and mint in a tall glass and using the back of a spoon, mash the mint leaves into the sugar. Add the remaining ingredients, mix, and serve.
* I find that making a simple syrup of sugar and water, and pre squeezing the limes ahead of time and keeping that in the fridge makes this drink a bit easier to prepare. Especially if you are hosting a party and don't want to spend all of your time making drinks*
