There are a couple of reasons for this blog post. First, a couple of weekends ago, I tried my first sip of a mojito. My boyfriend had gotten one when we were at Tutto Pasta, which is a local Italian restaurant (that I highly recommend if you're in the Madison area). It was delicious! Second, badger kitchen doesn't have any drink recipes! What better way to break the non-drink trend by featuring mojitos! Lastly, it is March now and all I can think about is springtime and warm weather. So, in the midst of a snow storm, I gathered all the ingredients and my new muddler and made some delicious mojitos.
adapted from various recipes, including the one that came with my new muddler, but ultimately I added the ingredients to taste
3 to 4 lime slices
4 to 6 mint leaves
1 to 2 shots white rum
2 tsp. sugar
club soda or sprite
1. With a muddler, mash the mint leaves in a glass. Add the lime slices and do the same.
3. Pour in the sugar and use the muddler to mix.
4. Fill the glass with ice.
5. Add the rum and then add soda to top the glass.
6. Stir and enjoy!
