The mojito was born in Havana, Cuba, and is a classic highball. Many variations of the drink abound, but this recipe calls for the five customary ingredients of mint, rum, powdered sugar, lime, and club soda. This fashionable yet traditional mojito is perfect for any summer occasion.

  • 1 lime, juiced

  • 1 teaspoon confectioners' sugar

  • 2 ounces white rum

  • 2 ounces club soda

  • 1 sprig mint, for garnish

  • 1 ounce crushed ice

  1. Put the mint leaves into a Collins glass and squeeze the lime juice over them.

  2. Add the powdered sugar and then muddle the mint, lime juice, and sugar together.

  3. Add crushed ice.

  4. Stir in the rum and top off with the club soda.
