Mojito time.........

You can't have a Cinco de Mayo party without a pitcher or two of Mojitos! This Mojito recipe has a bit of a "kick". But that's what makes it so good.
Jalapeno Simple Syrup:
1 cup sugar
1 Jalapeño, halved and seeded

Add the sugar, Jalapeño and 1 cup water to a saucepan. Bring to a boil, stirring to dissolve the sugar. When the sugar is dissolved, remove from the heat and let cool for 1 hour. Remove the Jalapeño before using.
1 cup fresh mint leaves
2 limes, halved
Club soda, for topping
9 ounces clear rum
 Divide the mint leaves between two pitchers, and muddle. Squeeze the juice of 1 lime into each pitcher, then add the simple syrup, evenly divided. Fill the pitchers with ice and top off with club soda. Add the rum to one of the pitchers. Stir and serve.
Till next time........
