  1. needs more mint leaves
  2. I made this about 5 times amount in a large jug for friends. Was a big hit. Also hits you hard after a few of them.
  3. Yummy! Followed the recipe but I didn't have club soda so I used tonic water and squeezed half a lime in each glass with lots of crushed fresh lime from my garden. So so good!
  4. Delightfully delicious! Will make again and again.
  5. All I had in the house was spiced rum and this recipe was still great.
  6. Love!
  7. Was very good I used strawberry rum and a little less sugar.
  8. A pleasant minty cocktail that’s so refreshing for a hot summer’s day. I didn’t have lemon-flavored rum, so I substituted lemon seltzer water for the soda water. I also used extra mint leaves as a personal preference.
  9. I've recently discovered I like mojitos and this is no exception. I used bottled lime juice and regular white rum per what I had on hand. I also prefer Diet 7up to club soda. CHEERS Alycia!
