We thought about pairing this one with a straight shot of tequila, but given that Selena’s Faith is the only one of the Spring Breakers bunch who DOESN’T descend into life of crime, we went with something a little sweeter. But spring break calls for tropical deliciousness, so knock yourself out with this colorful mojito!
1 oz. lime juice
1 oz. white rum
1.5 oz. Campari
4 large sprigs of mint, plus additional for garnish
2 lime wedges
2 to 4 oz. tonic water
Combine the mint sprigs, lime juice, and rum in a glass or cocktail shaker and muddle for several minutes. Add the Campari and a few cubes of ice; shake or stir until well chilled.
Fill a 12-oz. highball glass with crushed ice and squeeze a lime wedge over it. Fill the glass one-quarter full with tonic water. Strain the Campari mixture and add it to the glass. Garnish with the second lime wedge and mint.
