The orginal recipe used powered sugar, I like simple syrup better. Sugar and water in a pan heated untill its disolved. Not too much thou! I love these things so much I planted mint on the lanai. Some airlines now offer mile high majitos, American I think it was.
Anyone know how to make the mint suspend? Mine always floats to the surface even using a muddler.

Use larger sprigs. Don't chop or muddle too much, I find its the little pieces that get stuck in your teeth that are the ones to float.

I'll try that.
Also try my self invented Mojito-rita
Lime aid frozen mix, rum, ice, mint and a little soda water then blend!

Given that we're now approaching "The Winter Holidays", I suggest rum and eggnog with a bit of fresh grated nutmeg.

When on the boat, I like it simple (~ two ingredients) so how about Southern Comfort and cola? Or rum and Sprite. Or gin and tonic. Or vodka and orange (or any citrus) juice. Mmmmm.

mohito! - Rum, lime, mint, sugar, and water (the bubbly kind preferred)

Rum and OJ

or, if you have Goslings or better (HC7, Pampero, Zaya, Pyrat) then drink it straight up, add in a 9yr old Punch Churchill and you've found a little piece of heaven.

I've been sober for 7 years, 2 months and a few days. What am I gonna drink? St Pauli N/A is my adult beverage of choice, but that's only good 'till the ice goes to water, then what. I suppose a Coke with a 1/2t of RUM extract would be un-pirate-like huh. Oh the delimas I encounter on my way to becoming a "proper" sailor.

goose,

congrats on your sobriety.
i never garnered a taste for the stuff, but someone very close to me did, and it is truly 'one day at a time'...

anyway,

In the texas summer heat, we do a lot of iced tea, cokes and other sodas aren't too good for us due to the sugar content. Can't stand the taste of diet sodas

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
