Classic Mojito

I absolutely love mixing cocktails for friends and family. There is nothing more heartwarming than having a well-stocked bar to entertain people at home along with some barbecue action happening on the side.

If there is one basic drink that is a must have in your cocktail mixing repertoire it has to be a classic mojito. Muddled lemon wedges, fresh mint with a hit of vodka, and sprite just does the trick for me. Lots of ice, of course. The fresh aroma of the mint and juicy lemons just elevates the experience of this cocktail with every sip.

A pitcher of mojito at your brunch table will be an absolute crowd pleaser with hardly any work needed to put it together. Recipe follows.
