Inspired by A's Jalapeño Caparina, the jalapeño mojito is now the standard summer drink around here. A caparina seems almost a mojito but with a less handy alcohol and no mint…and why wouldn't you add mint if given the option? (Puzzling)

I mix the ingredients in no scientific manner. But I do have the ingredients easily accessible on the fly:

  • bottle o rum
  • ice cubes
  • handy ice cube tray in the freezer with fresh lime juice
  • jar of simple syrup in the fridge (cook 1 cup of sugar with 1/2 cup of water)
  • jalapeños growing outside in the garden
  • mint growing in the garden

I then simply mix the ingredients. I would guess on average I use something like (recipe not to be trusted):

  • 8 leaves of mint
  • 3-4 slices of jalapeño
  • 1.5 oz of rum
  • 1 lime ice cube
  • 1 spoonful of syrup
  • lots of ice cubes

The ice cubes melt a little, which tones down the drink. I don't add any sodas or water or mixers.
