Dark Mojito

Here’s another one to add to your Mojito Recipe Files – a Dark Mojito. It’s truly just a slight variation of The Perfect Mojito and a Dirty Mojito and in our opinion, tastes the rummiest of the three! Use a dark rum with a taste that you find pleasant, as the dark rum taste does rise above the milder taste of mint and sugar.

Dark Mojito
(makes one)

2 oz. dark rum
8 mint leaves
2 tsp. brown sugar
juice of 1/2 lime
club soda

Gently muddle the mint with the lime juice and brown sugar. Add crushed ice and the rum. Fill to the top of the glass with club soda. Garnish with a sprig of mint.
