Summer Libation Recipe
From the moment I knew I was going to grow mint in my backyard, I had my mind set on sipping refreshing mojitos in addition to my faithful summer drink of rosé. Enter my husband's tasty mojito made with fresh organic mint from our garden.
- 2 tablespoons of sugar (we use brown but most people use white)
- 2 limes
- 10 leaves of mint
- 1.5 ounce of White Rum (We use Bacardi)
- Sparkling water
Put the juice of 1 lime, 1/2 of the mint leaves and sugar into your mixer cup to crush with a muddler. Add your rum and ice and shake well. Cut the second lime into wedges and put into a glass with fresh ice and a few mint leaves. Pour your refreshing concoction into the ice filled glass. Add a lime wedge for garnish and top off with a spritz of sparkling water.
Skål! Santé! Cheers!
