Notes

Notes:
Always use fresh squeezed lime juice, not bottled.  We squeeze a few limes at the beginning of the week to use for cocktails (and cooking) through the week. 
Instructions are given for either using a cocktail shaker or preparing the mojito right in the cocktail glass.  Try both and see what your preference is. 
Simple syrup - equal parts water and sugar heated over medium heat until sugar dissolves.  Store in the fridge for up to a month.
