Ingredients
  • Simple Syrup:
  • 1 cup sugar
  • Mojito:
  • 8 to 10 fresh mint leaves, plus more for garnish
  • 3 lime wedges
  • 2 slices jalapeno, with seeds, plus more for garnish
  • 2 cups ice
  • 1 1/2 ounces dark rum
  • 1 ounce mango nectar (about 2 tablespoons)
  • About 2 ounces sparkling water
Directions

For the simple syrup: Combine the sugar and 1 cup water in a small sauce pot over medium heat. Bring to a simmer and cook, whisking occasionally, until the sugar dissolves, about 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and cool to room temperature. Refrigerate in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks.

For the mojito: Combine the mint, lime wedges, jalapeno and 3/4 ounce of the simple syrup (1 1/2 tablespoons) in a cocktail shaker and muddle. Fill the shaker with the ice, pour in the rum and mango nectar and shake briefly. Pour directly into a highball glass. Top off with the sparkling water and stir briefly. Garnish with a mint sprig and jalapeno slice.
