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.

Ingredients:

  • 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

Instructions:

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!
