It's hard to improve on a classic, but Nikki Beach is giving it a shot: Its Fresh Sugar Cane Mojito adds a sugar cane slice for nibbling -- so much tastier than a plastic swizzle.

D.I.Y.

Muddle 6 mint leaves, 4 lime twists and 1 tablespoon sugar in a cocktail shaker.

Add ice and 1½ ounces of Bacardi Limón rum; shake well.

Top with club soda.

Pour into a tall, ice-filled glass and garnish with a sugar cane slice,
lime wedges and mint leaves.
