Refreshing Mint and Lime Sparkler
This cocktail resembles a Mojito, only it calls for vodka instead of rum.
- 1/4 cup mint leaves
- 1/4 cup ice
- 2 ounces vodka
- 1 ounce sweetened lime syrup (Rose’s is a popular brand)
- Juice of 1/2 lime
- 1 1/2 ounces club soda, cold
Place mint leaves into the bottom of your cocktail shaker and muddle them a little. (Smash/bruise them with the back of a spoon. This will release the flavor in the leaves.)
Add ice, the vodka, lime syrup and lime juice. Put the cover on the shaker and shake for 20 seconds. Pour into a tall glass and top with club soda. Garnish with mint leaves.
