Mike's Note: May 2012 I made Mint Juleps, which are very similar to Mojitos except swapping Rum for Bourbon and adding club soda.

The basic Mojito recipe is http://allrecipes.com/recipe/the-real-mojito/

I suggest starting with the Julep recipe and making a mint extract and a simple syrup (as suggested in the comments at the Mojito web page) at least the day before as for Juleps: http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/sara-moulton/the-perfect-mint-julep-recipe/index.html

Send me home, Toto
