Mojito ("soft" version)

From Farm Where Life is Good

<p>A fresh, spring taste on a sunny afternoon. Sorry the limes are not local&#8230;but they are a favorite weakness. You could get creative and change the Simple Syrup to local maple syrup-syrup and see what that yields!</p>

Serves: 1 highball glass

8 leaves mint
1 1/2 Tbsp simple syrup
1/2 lime, juiced
crushed ice
soda water, sparkling water or gingerale

Step by Step Instructions
  1. Simple syrup (gotta have it hanging around in the fridge for quick, fresh drinks!) Bring 2 cups of plain cold tap water to a boil. Stir in 2 cups of plain granulated sugar. Turn the heat to low and stir constantly until the sugar dissolves completely.
  2. Drink recipe: Muddle mint and simple syrup in a highball glass (i.e. crush it and beat it and get those essential oils outta the leaves). Put ice in glass, add lime juice and fill with sparkling liquid of your choice. Stir and enjoy!
