It seems like it has been forever since my husband and I did a "Happy Friday Night". We've either been on vacation or have let the kids stay up later. However, most Friday nights, I make an appetizer and cocktail for us to enjoy after the kids have gone to bed.
To Make a Mojito:
Muddle a handful of mint leaves with 2 tablespoons of fresh lime juice in the bottom of a glass. I used mint from our sensory garden.
Add 2 tablespoons of simple syrup. I made this the day before by boiling 2 parts sugar and 1 part water until the sugar dissolved. Store covered in the refrigerator.
Add 1 oz of rum, 5 oz club soda, and ice. Garnish with a lime and mint sprig.

Happy Friday Night!
