Updated Mar 6, 2013

Ingredients

Mint Syrup

  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1 cup packed mint leaves, coarsely chopped

Mojitos

  • 1 cup rum
  • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice (from 2 medium limes)
  • 1 1/2 cups club soda, chilled
  • Ice cubes for 4 low-ball glasses
  • 12 thin lime slices (from 2 limes), cut in half
  • 4 fresh mint sprigs

Steps

  • 1
    In 1-quart saucepan, mix mint syrup ingredients. Heat to boiling over high heat, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat to low; simmer 5 minutes or until sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat; let stand at room temperature about 20 minutes.
  • 2
    Strain mint leaves mixture into pitcher; do not push on leaves or syrup will turn a dark green color. Add rum, lime juice and club soda to pitcher.
  • 3
    Fill 4 low-ball glasses with ice cubes. Place halved lime slices in glasses, pushing down along side of glass, allowing ice cubes to hold them in place.
  • 4
    Pour mint mixture into glasses over ice. Garnish each with mint sprig.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Make a big batch of the mint syrup and store it in your refrigerator for up to 1 week. If you make it beforehand, the mojitos will take only a few minutes to make.
  • tip 2
    For more mint flavor, place 1 tablespoonful chopped mint leaves in glasses before adding the ice.
  • tip 3
    Crushed ice can be substituted for the ice cubes.
