    1. Place mint leaves and 1 lime wedge into a glass. Use a muddler to crush the mint and lime to release the mint oils and lime juice. Add 2 more lime wedges and the sugar, and muddle again to release the lime juice. Do not strain the mixture.
    2. Fill the glass almost to the top with ice. Pour the rum over the ice and fill the glass with soda water. Garnish with the remaining lime wedge.

    Altered ingredient amounts. I substituted the secondary 2 lime wedges for 1oz of lime juice, and swapped out the soda and sugar for Sprite! - 08 Jan 2011

    SERIOUSLY love mojitos. Personally I prefer mine with raw cane sugar but each to his own taste - 19 May 2013
