Seeking Recipe: Mojitos for the Masses

I've looked through previous posts on mojito recipes. All were very informative.

But I'm wondering if anyone has any easy yet tasty way to make mojitos for a crowd of let's say 50 people. My parents are having a party and I told them I'd do some research.

  1. As a bartender I once made 130 mojitos in 2 hours for a cocktail party. It was hard work and made possible by prepping about 1/3 of the glasses with lime, simple syrup and mint.

    My recipe: In a 12 ounce double old fashion glass muddle 1/2 of a lime, @1/2 ounce simple syrup, @8 torn mint leaves. Fill with ice, add 2 ounces of white rum, shake and top with soda.

    1. Take a look at my post in the other thread. I've made them for that many folks. You just need a big bowl, and an electric citrus juicer would be nice too (hands get tired w/ just a reamer). Maybe not quite as authentic as individually-muddled glasses, but it certainly still tastes good. And the base keeps for a while in the fridge- all that sugar and acid makes it an inhospitable place for the bugs.

      Let me know if you have questions.

      1. You can infuse the rum with mint before (soak a good handful of mint per bottle for about 3-5 days) hand the use pre squeezed "FRESH" lime juice to make it up in big batches.

        There's a video with the recipe on the Dylan prime website. Granted that's served as a martini, but it can be served over ice as well.
