*makes one drink
- 8-10 mint leaves
- 4 lime wedges
- 1-2 tablespoons of sugar, to taste
- 1 cup of ice cubes
- 1.5 oz. of white rum
- ½ cup of club soda
Add the mint leaves and two lime wedges to a tall glass that you plan on serving the drink from. If you have a muddler, use it to muddle the limes and mint to release the oils and juices. If you do not have a muddler, you can use a fork, whisk, or something of a similar shape to muddle the ingredients. The focus should be on crushing the mint leaves and smashing the lime to release the juices and pulp. Add the sugar and two more lime wedges and repeat the muddling process until you feel that everything has been smashed up and muddled sufficiently. Fill the glass completely with ice, then add the rum. Fill the remaining space in the glass with club soda and stir. Voila!
On the Rocks Margarita
- ¼ cup freshly squeezed lime juice
- 2 shots of water
- ½ shot of agave nectar to taste
Salted Rim Directions:
If you do not choose to salt your rim, you can skip this set of instructions. Pour salt into a wide shallow bowl. Take a lime wedge and run the fruit around the rim of the glass to make the rim moist. Then, place the cup open side down into the salt bowl and twist it. The salt crystals should stick to the rim of the cup because of the lime juice.
In a large cocktail shaker, full of ice, squeeze in lime juice, add water, tequila and agave. Change ratios to taste. Shake or stir well. Strain liquid into a clean class full of ice to remove any pulp. Serve immediately.
