For cherry syrup:
2 cups cherries, pitted and roughly chopped
1 cup sugar
2 Tbsp. cherry syrup
6 to 8 mint leaves
1 slice of lime
1 shot of white rum
club soda or lemon lime soda
Combine cherries and sugar in a container and put in the fridge for at least an hour. The cherries and sugar will muddle and combine. In a glass, place mint leaves and cherry syrup. Add in juice from lime slice, then add the lime slice to the glass. Using the back of a spoon, muddle the ingredients gently. You don’t want to destroy the mint, only bruise it. Add in the rum and top off with club soda or lemon lime soda. Use the spoon and stir well to combine all the flavors.
Makes 1 mojito with additional cherry syrup left over.
