Any way... she has a bunch of mint that she grows in her backyard, and I came home to my lime tree on steroids. Time for a lime tree intervention...Mojitos!
To make ONE Mojito:
½ lime, cut in wedges
10 mint leaves
2 tbsp agave nectar
45 ml white rum
125 ml soda water
1 cup ice cubes
Put the mint leaves and the lime wedges in a Mojito glass. Crush the mint and lime together with a muddler to release their juices. I got these really cute Mojito glasses that came with a muddler that fits perfectly. If you don't have a muddler, you can use a mortar and pestle and then poor the juices into the glass.
Add the agave and muddle again. Do not strain the mix.
Fill the glass with the ice cubes.
Add the rum.
And fill the glass with soda water.
Decorate with a slice of lime and more mint leaves.
