Masterful Mojito

I like to make the kinds that people talk about. The ones that are so good, that you can't order them out any more.

As the days grow longer, my thoughts turn to summer. Yes, it's only February, but a great drink is always in season.

Masterful Mojito
1 1/2 oz Bacardi Superior Rum
1/4 oz Cointreau Orange Liqueur
3 tsp sugar
1 lime
Mint leaves

Quarter the lime. In a shaker, combine ice, Bacardi Superior, Cointreau, sugar, and the juice from one half of the lime. Shake until frosty. Gently muddle 12-14 fresh mint leaves in the bottom of a Collins glass with the juice from one lime quarter. Add 6-8 ice cubes to the glass and pour the contents of the shaker over the ice. Top off with club soda and a mint sprig and garnish with the remaining lime quarter.

Change it up a little bit by adding a splash of your favorite limoncello.
