killer mojitos

nothing screams warm friday evening like a killer mojito. last friday, after a long work week, chris and i whipped up a batch of these mint-y, citrus-y, icy cocktails. we basked in the last few rays warm sunshine and sipped away while cohen napped. it was simply lovely.
ingredients

Ice, 6 ounces light rum, 12 mint sprigs or spearmint (8 roughly broken apart), 6 tablespoons fresh lime juice, 4 tablespoons sugar, Club soda, 4 slices lime
directions

Place ice in beverage shaker (we used a mason jar) then add in the rum, 8 broken up mint sprigs, lime juice and sugar. Shake well and serve over ice in a high ball glass. Top off each glass with a splash of club soda.
Garnish each with a slice of lime and a sprig of mint.

happy wednesday! {monica}
