Mom's favorite drink

An e-mail from Mom: Dad and I relaxed by the pool yesterday, and made a couple of mojitos (our new favorite summer drink). I'll forward the recipe. It has lime and fresh mint.

MOJITO
3 cups (packed) fresh mint leaves
9 tablespoons sugar
1 1/2 cups light rum
1/2 cup fresh lime juice

6 cups club soda
6 cups crushed ice
6 lime wedges

Reserve 6 mint leaves for garnish. Place remaining mint leaves in medium bowl. Add sugar. Mash with wooden spoon until mint is aromatic and oils are released. Add rum and lime juice and stir until sugar dissolves. Strain mixture into pitcher. (Can be prepared 2 hours ahead; refrigerate.)

Add club soda to pitcher; gently stir. Fill each of 6 glasses with 1 cup crushed ice. Pour mojito over and garnish each glass with 1 mint leaf and 1 lime wedge.

Mom's so cute. I do believe my sister recommended this as a remedy to missing out on my vacation just yesterday. May have to take their advice, no? Happy Fourth of July everyone!
