A refreshing minty taste is complemented with the Mojito during the summer. The crisp and clean beverage consists of white rum, mint, lime juice, sugar, and carbonated water. Sprite or 7-up can be used in place of the soda water. To unlock oils that will improve the minty flavor, rather than dice the mint leaves.
The Mojito cocktail may be served in a collins or highball glasses. The drink is usually garnished with fresh mint leaves and the fruit of a lime wedge. Although it can be served without ice, using crushed ice would make the cocktail more refreshing. Additionally, the beverage is often topped with soda water in order to create fizz.
