Pitcher Mojitos

With Spring upon us and Summer nearly here, 
let's celebrate with a pitcher of Mojitos...the easy 
way to mix this sparkling cocktail.

 1 large bunch of spearmint, plus 8 additional sprigs for garnish
 3/4 cup sugar
 1 lime, rinsed and quartered, plus 1/3 cup fresh lime juice
 1 cup club soda, plus more for serving
 2 cups dark rum
 Ice cubes

In a bowl, using a wooden spoon, crush the spearmint with the
sugar and lime quarters until the sugar starts to dissolve and
tastes like mint. Add 1 cup of the club soda and stir until the
sugar dissolves completely. Strain the mixture into a pitcher. 
Stir in the lime juice and rum. Fill 8 tall glasses with ice and 
add a crushed mint sprig to each. Pour the mixture over the ice, 
top each glass with club soda and serve.

The strained mojito mixture can be refrigerated overnight. It 
gets better!
