Maple Mint Mojito

For each cocktail:

3 oz light rum {I like Jamaican}
2 sprigs of mint + 1 sprig for garnish
3 T fresh lime juice
1 oz maple syrup
Club soda
1-2 thin slices of lime

Muddle 2 sprigs of mint per person at the bottom of a cocktail shaker.

Add the run, lime juice and maple syrup, top with ice and shake really well.

Add ice and lime slices to the glass and pour in the cocktail through the strainer.

Top with club soda and garnish with fresh mint and serve.
