City Grocery Mojitos Recipe

Ingredients

  1. 1 large bunch of spearmint, plus 8 additional sprigs for garnish
    3/4 cup sugar
    1 lime, rinsed and quartered, plus 1/3 cup fresh lime juice
    1 cup club soda, plus more for serving
    2 cups dark rum
    Ice cubes

Directions

  1. In a bowl, using a wooden spoon, crush the spearmint with the sugar and lime quarters until the sugar starts to dissolve and tastes like mint. Add 1 cup of the club soda and stir until the sugar dissolves completely.
  2. Strain the mixture through a coarse sieve into a pitcher. Stir in the lime juice and rum.
  3. Fill 8 tall glasses with ice and add a mint sprig to each, lightly crushing it with your hands. Pour the mixture over the ice, top each glass with club soda and serve.

Serves 8.

Make Ahead: The strained mojito mixture can be refrigerated overnight.
