Jazz and Cocktails

Poncho Sanchez requires a mojito, natch. This track from Conga Blue one of my favorites, but he may never make a better album than Afro-Caribbean Fantasy. Really, both of them belong in your collection.

While you play the song and maybe pull up Amazon, let's make a mojito.

You'll need:

Several mint leaves

One sprig of mint

The juice of one-half lime

2 ounces of your favorite light rum

1 tablespoon sugar

Club soda

Ice

Put the leaves, lime juice, and sugar in the bottom of a highball glass, then muddle it. Fill the glass halfway with ice, add the rum, and stir quickly. Fill the glass the rest of the way with ice, then top off with club soda. Give it one last stir, and garnish with the sprig.

Here's the one I just made.

Cheers.
