The Mojito; Greek Style

The Greek Version of the Mojito uses Metaxa Brandy and may taste a bit snazzier next time you are tanning on a Greek Island this summer.  The drink is pretty simple to make and can get any summer party started the right way.  The Drink is light and refreshing.

Start with  1 1/2 oz of Metaxa 7*, 3/4 oz. lemon Juice, club soda, 2 lime wedges, 2 tsp. brown sugar, 10 mint sprigs.  Muddle sugar, lemon juice, lime wedges, and mint in a highball glass. Fill with crushed ice, add Metaxa and top off with soda water. Then at the end Stir and Garnish with mint sprigs.
