Fresh mint and zesty lime combine to create a flavor base for this classic rum cocktail. We use superfine sugar to ensure it all dissolves for the smoothest refreshing mojito. Source:, May 2018

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Place rum, mint, sugar and lime in a 1-cup measuring cup. Muddle all the ingredients with a muddler or the handle end of a wooden spoon until the sugar has dissolved, the mint is well bruised and the lime has released its juice. Pour into a glass, stir in club soda and then add crushed ice. Garnish with a fresh mint sprig, if desired.



Tip: Superfine sugar is sugar that dissolves instantly. It is available in the baking section of most supermarkets, but if you can't find it, process regular granulated sugar in a food processor or blender until very finely ground.
