The trick to a good Mojito is don't over think it. It is simply lime, sweetener, mint, rum and club soda, anything else is just there to cover up mistakes. Two things ruin mojitos, over muddling and lime rind, both release bitter tars that can not be sweetened away. Follow these simple instructions and you will have yourself a really tasty mojito even at home.
