The Perfect Mojito

Warning: if you try this recipe, you'll never again trust a bartender to mix your mojito.I was fed up with mediocre bar mojitos, and decided to learn to make a traditional one myself. After much research, I think I've arrived at perfection. Try it for yourself! Notes: Real sugar cane syrup really does make a difference. Any good liquor store will have it. Use mineral water with a high effervescence, like Perrier. You want a bit of texture to your mojito to balance the sweetness.
