Sparkling Lime Refresher

After I traveled to Cuba and became crazy about mojitos, I decided to make my own version of the drink at home! Sometimes I add a shot of rum, but most of the time I don’t because I really just like how refreshing this drink is on its own. But for my ~over 21~ friends, go for it!

This really is the drink of the summer for me – it’s cool, light, slightly sweet and super fresh.


*makes one drink


1 lime

10-12 mint leaves

1 tbsp. agave

8 oz. seltzer water


Optional: 1 shot white rum or silver tequila



  1. Cut the lime in half and juice one of the halves into your glass.
  2. Add the mint and agave (if you want to add a shot, do it now!). Muddle everything together with a wooden spoon.
  3. Fill the glass with ice and fill it up to the top with seltzer water.
  4. Finish it off with a lime slice.
