On an evening when even the air feels sweaty, there’s nothing better than a fresh minty mojito to cool you down. It might not be true what they say about how Hemingway drank them and if he did then which recipe his favorite but this one will keep things classic with just enough fizz for our taste!
- ¾ ounce simple syrup
- 2 sprigs mint, plus more for serving
- 2 ounces white rum
- ¾ ounce fresh lime juice
- Club soda (for serving)
- Muddle simple syrup and 2 mint sprigs in a cocktail shaker. Add rum and lime juice. Fill shaker with ice, cover, and shake vigorously until outside of shaker is very cold, about 20 seconds.
- Strain cocktail through a Hawthorne strainer or a slotted spoon into a tall Collins glass filled with ice. Top off with club soda; garnish with more mint.
