Take a tall glass of the "headball". Stir into it 3 teaspoons of brown sugar. Sugar necessary it brown – its soft caramel flavor will give the finished drink the right shade.
Cut the fruit in half lime (remember to scald it with boiling water before making the cocktail). Then again, already cut half a lime into two parts. Quarters of the fruit press in a glass, and then throw the same crust.
Now add the mint. The more you take mint, the more refreshing the drink is.

Do not tear the leaves with your hands. Put them in a glass and gently mash with the pestle. Don't overdo green rags in a glass of cocktail will look not very aesthetically pleasing.
Put the ice – the smaller, the better. In a pinch it'll do the usual and cubes from the freezer. Fill the glass, which are already mint, sugar, juice and lime slices, ice, about 2/3 full. This is an important point: the components of the beverage should not float glass.
Now pour in a glass of 50-60 ml of rum. Better Cuban for authenticity. Dark rum cocktail is not suitable. For making mojitos using only the light variation of this alcoholic beverage.
Fill the glass with tonic (e.g. Schweppes), insert a straw, garnish the edge of the glass with a slice of lime. The cocktail is ready.
