Mojitos Are:

Cool, refreshing, minty, sweet, perfection, They are also my latest obsession. I just can't get enough of them. So I simply had to post my favorite recipe for them.

1.5-oz Light/ Dark Bacardi Rum
.5-oz triple sec
.5- oz mint simply syrup (recipe Follows)
2- slices of lime
Fresh Mint 4-6 leaves (more if you like it stronger)
splash- fresh lime juice
1 -can Canada Dry ginger ale
1-bottle Reed's Ginger Brew

In a shaker muddle lime, mint, mint syrup with just a couple of ice cubes
--- add Rum, triple sec, and fresh lime juice.
--- Transfer to pint glass and fill with ice, then add the ginger ale and just an inch of ginger brew, give one last stir, then garnish with lime and mint
