-Knowing how to make a mojito will make you the hit of every party. With only a few simple steps, you'll be the master of the mojito and be able to easily make this minty Cuban drink. Start by placing eight or so mint leaves and sugar in a cocktail shaker. You can also make your drink directly in your glass if you don't have a cocktail shaker. Use the end of a wooden spoon or a muddler, if you have one, to mash or muddle your leaves and sugar together. This helps release the flavor in your mint. Next, pour lime juice, rum and ice cubes into your cocktail shaker. Shake, shake, shake up your drink. Now, all you have to do is strain your drink into an ice-filled tall or lowball glass, and top off with club soda. Garnish with fresh mint and a slice of lime for a restaurant worthy drink that's made to be shared with friends.
