Mojito ('Mo hee toe')

A Cuban cocktail featuring lime and fresh mint.  Ernest Hemingway's favorite drink.


1 tablespoon sugar
Juice of 1 lime
About 6 fresh mint leaves
1 1/2 ounces white rum
A big splash of soda water
Lots of ice

      The Recipe

For each drink:  In a tall glass, put sugar, lime juice and mint leaves. With the back of a spoon, gently crush the mint into the sugar and lime juice, being careful not to shred the leaves. Add rum, soda water and ice and stir to mix. Garnish with more mint if you like. You can drink it with a straw if you want to avoid the mint leaves.
