best mint for mojitos?

Trying to grow some herbs in planters again here in MN. My basils are looking like lost causes, but my peppermint, sweet mint, and lemon balm are going crazy, and all in the same planter.

Wondering what SE'ers prefer for the mint in their mojitos or other minty drinks. Last year I grew spearmint, which was a bit assertive (and not authentic but I don't care that much). the sweet mint is a bit weak, and peppermint doesn't seem right.

Any hints on what I should plant, or search for, for next year
