These are a version of mojitos — but sweeter. They are different from the mojitos that you get in a bar, because they have a mint syrup and limeade rather than mint, sugar, lime juice and rum. The traditional mint to use is spearmint (Mentha spicata) — but any mint will do.
Use any kind of rum that you like — however the lemon-flavored Bacardi Citron is quite perfect here. Make the mint syrup ahead to have on hand.
