The Magnito

A French version of the ever-popular Mojito - using Armagnac VS.

Ingredients:

* 10 fresh spearmint leaves

* 1/2 lime cut into three wedges

* 2 Tablespoons sugar

* Ice cubes

* 1 1/2 ounces Labiette Castille VS Armagnac

* Club soda

Directions:

Put fresh spearmint leaves and one lime wedge into a sturdy glass.  Muddle/crush everything together to release the juice and the mint oils.

Add remaining lime wedges and the sugar to the glass.  Muddle/crush again.  Leave limes and leaves in the glass, don't strain. 

Fill glass with ice, almost to the top.

Add Armagnac and then fill the glass with club soda.
