how to make a rum mojito1½ oz. White Rum
½ cup Club soda
10 Fresh Mint Leaves
4 Wedges of Lime

After gathering all the necessary ingredients, it’s now time to prepare the cocktail drink. The first process needed in making a rum mojito is muddling, a process in which solid pieces of ingredients are mushed using a muddling tool for bartending. First, get your cocktail shaker, pour in the right amount of rum inside, then place your pieces of mint leaves and lime wedges. Once that’s done, get your muddling tool and muddle all the ingredients inside the shaker together. Make sure to muddle the ingredients complete so that no tiny chunks and pieces are left. There will be no straining the content so it is important that you muddle very carefully and effectively.

Upon finishing with the muddling part, get some ice and place it inside the shaker along with your muddled ingredients. Place the lid of the shaker, grab both bottom and top parts of the shaker making sure they do not separate, and then shake the contents very vigorously, agitating the contents and allowing the liquids to take the temperature of the ice. Now, pour the shaker’s contents into your serving glass. Top the poured content with some club soda. Now you have a rum mojito that you can use and create during family parties and social gatherings.

Mary Spencer Eyes Gold for Canada at Pan American Games

In October, the world will be paying close attention to the boxing matches at the Pan American Games in Guadalajara. Historically, the world’s next professional boxers utilize the Pan American games to showcase their ability to compete on the international stage. Not to mention, these games in Guadalajara will act as a tune-up for those that will be attending the 2012 Summer Olympics in London, England.

Armature boxers from around the world will descend upon Guadalajara with the goal of capturing a gold medal, qualifying for the London Olympics, and making a name for themselves in the competitive world of international boxing. Yet, the Guadalajara games will take on a whole new importance for a young group of amateur fighters.

Women’s boxing gets its turn at Pan Ams

GUADALJARA, Mexico — Spencer is a three-time world champion and a medal favourite in her 75-kilogram weight class, one of three that will be used in both the Pan Am Games and the Olympics. She will have to qualify through a national event this winter, and then through the world championships next spring, but she is expected to cast a stern figure in the ring in London.

“She hits like a man,” her coach, Charlie Stewart, told The Windsor Star. “She’s a hard puncher. She’s six foot tall. She’s got lots of leverage. She can really hit.”

The Drive to Gold Olympic Fundraising Event

The Drive to Gold fundraising event for Olympic hopeful Mary Spencer held on September 17, 2011 was wildly successful. Mary won her bout in the ring against the 2010 Provincial Champion, Amber Groome from Edmonton. Hundreds of people from Windsor Essex packed the warehouse at Drive Logistics on Devon Drive to enjoy a fight night that also included live bands, auctions, and Arial Acrobatics. Mary would like to thank all of the volunteers, her sponsors and especially her main sponsor Drive Logistics for hosting and coordinating the event. Most importantly Mary would like to thank all of her fans and supporters, now dubbed “Team Spencer” who are helping her bring the Gold home to Windsor through their continued financial support, attendance at the events, and for simply cheering her on. Mary is now looking forward to the next event to be scheduled in early spring of 2012
