One of the most googled cocktail of the time, the Mojito, some say, is the perfect rum cocktail. It can be made so many ways – with simple syrup, with white sugar, with brown sugar, with superfine sugar.

It really doesn’t matter as long as you have rum, mint and lime! I like tasting the sugar so I make mine with the normal stuff. Only freshly squeezed lime juice will do.
