Campari Mojito for One

INGREDIENTS

  • 1/4 ounce (about 4 large sprigs) fresh mint, plus additional for garnish
  • 1 ounce lime juice
  • 1 ounce white rum
  • 1 1/2 ounce Campari
  • Crushed ice
  • 2 lime wedges
  • 2 to 4 ounces good tonic water, such as Fevertree or Q Tonic

PREPARATION

  1. Place the mint sprigs in a large glass or cocktail shaker, and add the lime juice and rum. Muddle with a muddler or a wooden spoon for several minutes, crushing the mint and releasing its aroma. Add the Campari and a few cubes of ice, and shake or stir until well chilled.
  2. Fill a 12-ounce highball glass with crushed ice and squeeze a lime wedge over top. Pour in enough tonic water to fill the glass a quarter full, then pour in the strained Campari mixture. Garnish with a little more tonic water, the second lime wedge, and mint. Best with a straw!
