You knew this was coming..... {Elderflower Mojito}

Elderflower Mojito
I'm not going to lie, I've been thinking of this since I bought my St~Germain.  I just needed mint.... and apparently someone to get it for me.  Well, it all came together today.  Thanks Barbie for the mint and the Fluff for Kyra.  All is well.  Wish you coulda stayed for a maiden Mojito.... you'll have to come back.
So, here's what you need
1 1/2 oz. white rum {I used Bacardi}
1 oz St~Germain
1 oz Simple Syrup
8 mint leaves
4 lemon slices halved

Muddle to perfection
fill appropriate glass with ice
top with 2 oz club soda and.... you know, AHHHH

p.s. 
I've finally remembered to put an order in with Farmer PopPop to grow mint.... I mean my mint bill annually is akin to a utility bill, we need to grow it

  1. Yup, we should be growing our mint as well. Actually, we should be growing our own rum, too... Speaking of which, I'll have one of these, please.

  2. BEST IDEA EVER! Why have I never added St Germain to this? I put it in everything!

  5. St. Germain is seriously in right now, and I haven't liked a lot of the drinks using it--but I think I'd love this. Buzzed!
