The Miami Mojito

How to Make a Mojito :
The Miami Mojito
(Mojito with Simple Syrup)

  • ½ lime, quartered
  • 5-6 fresh mint leaves
  • Crushed Ice
  • 2 ounces White/light rum
  • 1 ounce simple syrup*
  • 2 drops bitters
  • 3 ounces Club Soda
* Simple Sugar Syrup:
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup sugar


Bring water and sugar to a low boil and cook for 2-3 minutes until sugar dissolves. Water will appear slightly cloudy, but will become clear as it cools. Cool to room temperature.
Store in the refrigerator in a squeeze bottle or airtight container. If properly sealed, the syrup will keep up to 2 weeks. One batch will make about 12 mojitos.

Muddle lime and mint in the bottom of a tall glass. Add light rum, simple syrup, and bitters. Fill the glass to the top with ice. Top with club soda. Cover the glass with a shaker tin or transfer the mixture to a shaker and shake for 5-6 seconds. Garnish with lime wedge, mint sprig, and sugar cane swizzle stick.
