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)
  • Ice
  • 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!
