Tequila Mojitos

Prep: 10 min., Cook: 8 min., Stand: 2 hrs. The simple syrup needed for this beverage may be made up to 1 week ahead and stored in the refrigerator.

Makes 5 cups
* 1 cup water
* 3/4 cup sugar
* 1 cup fresh mint sprigs
* 2 cups lemon-lime soft drink, chilled
* 1 cup fresh lime juice
* 1/2 cup tequila
* Garnish: fresh mint sprigs, lime slices

1. Bring 1 cup water and sugar to a boil in a medium saucepan. Boil, stirring often, until sugar dissolves. Remove from heat; add mint sprigs, and let stand 2 hours or until mixture is completely cool.

2. Pour mixture through a wire-mesh strainer into a pitcher, discarding mint. Stir in lemon-lime soft drink, lime juice, and tequila. Serve over ice. Garnish, if desired.
