Gin Mojito

We're lovin' us some Olympics around here ... 
and we're lovin' us some Gin Mojitos while we're watching the Olympics even more!

In addition to my serious avocado addiction this summer, I've also been on a major mint kick.
I've put it in salads, drinks and desserts every chance I get.

For these mojitos, I made a mint simple syrup 
(1 part sugar to 1 part water, add a bunch of fresh mint, simmer over med heat for 10 mins, chill.)

8ish mint leaves
1.5 oz gin
1 oz lime juice (I just use a big wedge)
.5 oz simple syrup
1 oz club soda
Muddle mint and lime in glass.  Add liquids, ice and stir.

 My mojito is ready when it looks more like a salad than a drink ...
nothing better.
