True Lime Mojito:  Courtesy of True Citrus

10 fresh mint leaves

1 packet True Lime

2 tablespoons sugar

1-1/2 fluid ounces white rum

club soda

ice cubes

Directions: Place mint leaves, True Lime, sugar and rum in a sturdy glass. Use a muddler to crush the mint to release the mint oil. (Be sure to bruise, not shred, the mint leaves to best release the oils.) Do not strain the mixture. Fill the glass almost to the top with ice. Pour club soda over the ice. Stir, taste, and add more True Lime if desired. Garnish with a mint leaf.
