Bacardi Mojito


This tastes frostier than fresh snow melt. Bear likes these--especially when you go easy on the sugar or simple syrup. This comes from the Bacardi web site. The Bacardi company has a really interesting history. The original family still owns and operates the whole shebang. They moved as much as they could from Cuba to Puerto Rico when Castro came to power. By the way Bacardi 8 is Bear's second favorite sipping rum. Demerara's "El Dorado" 12 year old is Bear's favorite, probably only because he has not tried the 15 year old, 21 year old and 25 year old rums. :-) These are rums that would be a crime to waste in mixed drinks.

  1. Muddle mint leaves and lime in tall glass.
  2. Cover with simple syrup (or just sugar).
  3. Fill glass with ice.
  4. Add BACARDI Rum and club soda.
  5. Stir well.
  6. Garnish glass with lime wedge and sprigs of mint.
    Simple Syrup:
  1. 2 parts sugar, 3 parts water.
  2. Fill bottle with sugar to the halfway mark.
  3. Add hot water up to the start of the bottleneck.
  4. Cover the top and shake well. At this point, the water level will drop.
  5. Add a little more water, cover and shake until clear.
  6. Store in a cool, dry place.
