A Fantastic use for Mint!

So we're growing a garden this year and one of the things we have in excess right now is mint. After talking about the many uses for mint the most logical one seemed to be Mojito's !!
I picked the mint from the garden while Anthony made some simple syrup.  BTW, simple syrup really is very simple.  Equal parts sugar and water, boil and let cool.
Heres the recipe we've been using....

Approximately 12 mint leaves ( or enough to cover the bottom of the glass and some more....
2.5 tbs of simple syrup
1/2 of fresh lime juice
1.5 oz of rum ( about a shot and a half )
7 oz of club soda
