We got a fresh crop of mint in our CSA box last week, and my mind immediately went to mojitos. What a perfect spring cocktail!

Minty deliciousness.

I even made a virgin version for the hubby, who was still on the good drugs from his surgery at the time. He enjoyed it, but I bet it wasn’t as good as mine!

Makes one serving

2 oz light rum
2 Tbs lime juice
1 Tbs + 1 tsp sugar*
3 mint springs, roughly torn apart, plus 2 more for garnish
club soda

Mix the rum, lime juice, sugar, and mint sprigs in a shaker with ice. Shake until very cold and strain into a glass over plenty of ice. Add the ice cubes from the shaker for extra minty, sugary goodness. Top off with just a splash of club soda — don’t overdo it! Garnish with the remaining mint sprigs.

* I use Baker’s sugar because it is quick-dissolving and great for making drinks, but regular granulated sugar should work fine.
