Light, herbal, refreshing mojitos for summer days! This is a simple twist on a classic mojito made with basil and lemon. Erin suggests freezing ice cubes with mint, basil and lemon slices, which would be a nice touch. Ingredients listed yield one cocktail.
Sprig of basil
Sprig of mint
1 teaspoon raw sugar or agave nectar
1 1/2 ounces clear rum
Big squeeze of fresh lemon
Club soda or seltzer
In a sturdy glass, muddle fresh basil and mint leaves with sugar. Add rum and lemon juice. Fill the glass with ice, top it off with club soda and stir it with a spoon.
