How to make a Mojito Cocktail (with or without alcohol)

Toast summer farewell with a mojito cocktail.  This is a fantastic rum based lime-ade mixed with mint leaves that is very refreshing (with alcohol or without).  Its a great mixed cocktail for parties which can also be made ahead of time in pitchers.  Cheers!

Ingredients:
Approx 10 fresh mint leaves
1/2 lime, cut into 4 wedges
2 tablespoons white sugar (less or more to taste)
 ice cubes
1 1/2 ounces of white rum (optional)
1/2 cup club soda


Place mint leaves, lime wedges and sugar into a sturdy glass. Use a muddler, pestle (or end of a long rolling pin if you have neither) to crush the mint and lime to release the mint oils and lime juice. Fill the glass almost to the top with ice. Pour in the rum and then fill the glass with soda water and stir. This makes a delicious summertime drink with or without alcohol.
