Tips

Expert Tips

  • 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.
  • For more mint flavor, place 1 tablespoonful chopped mint leaves in glasses before adding the ice.
  • Crushed ice can be substituted for the ice cubes.
