Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 36 leaves fresh mint, or to taste
  • 3 limes, quartered
  • 1 cup rum
  • 1 liter club soda
  • Chef notes

    The last thing anyone needs on a camping trip is a bunch of extra bottles to carry. These pre-mixed mojitos are easy to transport and wonderfully refreshing on a hot sumner night.

    Technique tip: Store the cocktails in small mason jars and load them in your cooler for easy, individual drinks.

    Swap option: For a slightly sweeter cocktail, substitute lemon-lime soda for the club soda.

    Preparation

    Muddle sugar and mint leaves together in pitcher until leaves are well broken down. Add limes and muddle until limes are juiced. Stir the rum into the sugar mixture. If you're making these ahead, pour the mixture into a large jar with a tight fitting lid. When ready to serve, add the club soda and stir until sugar is dissolved.
