The.Tortilla.Guy's picture
The Mojito originated in Cuba in the early part of the twentieth century, and Ernest Hemingway was an early fan of the elegant cocktail served at La Bodeguita del Medio in Havana.
Ingredients
  Fresh mint leaves 12
  Raspberries 20 (Fresh, Red Color)
  Lime juice 1⁄8 Cup (2 tbs)
  Sugar syrup 4 Teaspoon
  Soda water 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Mint sprig 1
  White rum 1⁄4 Ounce
  Grenadine 1⁄4 Ounce
Directions

Carefully press mint leaves into the bottom of the glass with the back of a wooden spoon to release their oils (do not tear leaves).
Mix mint, crushed berries, lime juice and sugar syrup in a 12 oz. highball glass.
Fill glass with crushed ice (cubed ice will not work).
Stir well until the ice is reduced by 1/3 and then top with more crushed ice, stirring until the glass begins to frost on the outside.
Pour in soda water and stir again.
Rum and grenadine
Garnish with a sprig of fresh mint
