Recipe for Mojitos by the Pitcher. If you haven't tried Mojitos before, you're in for a treat and these are the best.

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup loosely packed mint leaves
  • 1 cup freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 2/3 cups simple syrup
  • 1 1/2 cups rum
  • 3 cups club soda
  • ice

Directions

  1. Makes 1 Large Pitcher
  2. Use a mortar and pestle to mash up or "muddle" the mint leaves. If you don't have a mortar and pestle, you can use the back of a spoon to mash up the mint leaves. The point is you want to release the flavors and oil in the leaves as much as possible.
  3. Fill the bottom 1/4 to 1/3 of the pitcher with ice. Toss in the muddled mint leaves and remaining ingredients.
  4. Fill the remainder of the pitcher with ice. Stir well and serve on the rocks.
