From Bon Appetit, May 2003. It's very refreshing and a good version of a mojito if you choose not to drink rum like I do. Our choice of tequila is Milagro.more
3 tbsp fresh lime juice
4 tsp sugar
12 large fresh mint leaves
¼ cup blanco or reposado tequila
¼ cup club soda
In a highball glass, mix lime juice, sugar, and mint. Mash mint leaves with the back of a spoon until the sugar dissolves. Fill the glass with ice. Add tequila and club soda; stir to blend.
