The Irish Mojito

Irish Mojito
We had just finished up our collection of Madtini cocktails for Saint Patrick’s Day when we spotted this drink posted at RecipeGirl.com. We’re a sucker for Mojitos all year round and this sounded too good to not try. Check out the original Irish Mojito post at RecipeGirl.com.
Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 oz rum
  • 8-10 mint leaves
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • juice of half a lime
  • juice of quarter of a lemon
  • splash of club soda
  • splash of creme de menthe
  • lime wedge

Ingredients
Muddle the juice of half a lime and mint leaves in a mixing glass. Add the rum, sugar and lemon juice. Add ice and shake the contents. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Add a splash of club soda, then drizzle creme de menthe so that it settles in the bottom of the glass. Garnish with a lime wedge.
