"I am a Mojito fanatic, but it wasn't until my brother made me one that I knew what Mojito perfection was!!! You might laugh at my recipe, but it works every time, regardless of the size of the mint and/or lime. Multiple five-star ratings on the "other" site can't be wrong...!!!"

Step 1

In a cocktail shaker, place the TWELVE mint leaves, 6 pieces of lime and the simple syrup (or superfine sugar). With a muddler, mash up the lime pieces and mint leaves so that they release their flavors and oils. Taste for sweetness and adjust if necessary.

Step 2

Add the rum and a handful of ice. Shake vigorously for 20 seconds or until ice crystals form.

Step 3

With a cocktail strainer, pour into a tall ice-filled glass. Top off with club soda. Garnish edge of glass with a slice of lime.
