Mardi Gras Mojito

  • 2 leaves fresh mint
  • 1 tablespoon simple syrup
  • 2 cubes ice
  • 1 1/4 fluid ounces rum
  • 1 fluid ounce carbonated water

In a cocktail glass or small clear glass of your choice, muddle (crush) mint leaves with simple syrup. Add crushed or cubed ice and rum. Top with carbonated water almost to the top of the glass. Garnish with a sprig of fresh mint leaves or lime wedges. Serving with a purple or yellow napkin makes this a festive addition to your Mardi Gras party.
