The Bajito

The Bajito is a mojito with dark rum and with basil in addition to mint. It's more complex than a mojito; the dark rum gives it caramel and brown sugar flavors, and the basil makes it a little spicy.

It's also a great way to use up dark rum when you're out of ginger beer.

4 basil leaves
4 mint leaves
5 slices lime
1 tablespoon simple syrup
3 oz dark rum

Muddle the lime, basil and mint together with the simple syrup. Add rum, shake, and serve over ice.
