Mojitos are classic Cuban drinks that are as refreshing as they are delicious. Traditionally, the recipe is a combination of lime, mint, sugar, white rum, and club soda.
Together these ingredients combine to create a fizzy magical elixir to help you conquer the hottest days of the year with a smile on your face.
Possibly some of my favorite cocktail varieties are the many mojitos with a fruit twist. Endless possibilities from strawberry, rhubarb, mango, and, my personal favorite, blueberry make up the vast array of mojitos with a twist.
Making a mojito is simple. In a tall glass muddle together white sugar, mint, and lime. Add some crushed ice, rum, and club soda. That's all there is to this simple cocktail recipe.
Sounds easy, huh?
You should definitely give these crisp and refreshing drinks a chance. These are simply perfect for pool days. Or even picnics. Did you July is National Picnic Month? I sure didn't.
Sounds like a great reason to have a cocktail in the sunshine.
What I love about drinks like this is that you can make one at a time or a pitcher to share. Drinks are always best shared with friends in my opinion.
Ingredients- makes one cocktail
1 lime, juiced
5-6 mint leaves
1 tsp granulated cane sugar
1 1/2- 2 ounces white rum
3/4 cup crushed ice
1/2 cup club soda (top off the glass)
To begin, feel free to sugar the rim of the glass for an extra kick of sweetness to your drink. Otherwise, in a tall glass, combine the freshly squeezed juice of one lime, sugar, blueberries, and mint leaves and muddle them until well combined. Fill the glass with your crushed ice and then add the rum. Give the drink a quick stir and add the club soda. Stir well to combine and garnish with more mint and or blueberries. Sugar cane sticks make an excellent garnish as well. Enjoy!
