Usually mojitos are made by muddling limes, sugar and mint leaves in a glass to release all of the essential oils. While this results in a tasty cocktail, it’s kind of a pain when you’re trying to serve a crowd.
Mint simple syrup and lime juice are great workarounds that allow you to make drink after drink after drink. But you still want your cocktails to be memorable, so don’t just use any mint simple syrup. Make your own smoked mint simple syrup with sugar, water and fresh mint leaves.
The aroma of the cocktail will remind you of sipping rum at a beach bonfire.
