This variation simplifies the process by using mint syrup instead of muddled mint leaves and sugar, thus allowing for a quick assembly without skimping on the quintessential refreshing mint and lime flavors that define a Mojito. It's typically served in a highball glass, preserving the cocktail’s aesthetic and effervescent character. The Shortcut Mojito promises a sweet, tangy, and herbaceous profile, perfect for those looking to enjoy the essence of a Mojito with a more straightforward preparation.
