What is the best Mojito recipe?!

Question: What is the best Mojito recipe!?
I like my own Mojitos, but I learned from the girlfriend of Key West's Mojito Master!. And he doesn't measure exactly!. So mine come out a little differently each time I make them!. I would rather hear someone's first-hand recipe than use one from a recipe or cooking website!. And how about Mint Juleps while we're at it!?Www@FoodAQ@Com

Cuban Mojito recipe

the original authentic recipe from Havana Cuba

1 teaspoon powdered sugar
Juice from 1 lime (2 ounces)
4 mint leaves

1 sprig of mint
Havana Club white Rum (2 ounces)
2 ounces club soda

(If you repost this recipe or my comments, I'd love a link back to this web page as your source, thanks!) There are countless recipes for the Mojito (pronounced moh-HEE-toh), but this version is for the one Hemingway himself enjoyed at the Mojito's place of birth: La Bodeguita del Medio in Havana, Cuba!. If you are throwing a Cuban theme party (Havana night themed party), definitely plan on serving mojitos!.

Place the mint leaves into a long mojito glass (often called a "collins" glass) and squeeze the juice from a cut lime over it!. You'll want about two ounces of lime juice, so it may not require all of the juice from a single lime!. Add the powdered sugar, then gently smash the mint into the lime juice and sugar with a muddler (a long wooden device pictured below, though you can also use the back of a fork or spoon if one isn't available)!. Add ice (preferably crushed) then add the rum and stir, and top off with the club soda (you can also stir the club soda in as per your taste)!. Garnish with a mint sprig!.Www@FoodAQ@Com
