Happy Hour

Independence Drinks

Happy National Mojito Day! We went to our new friends’ house last Thursday and brought the bar (sans fab glassware, which they provided) with us.

Red, White, and Bluejito

  • A large handful of berries: strawberries/raspberries/blueberries
  • 10-15 fresh mint leaves, plus a stalk for garnish
  • 1 TBSP lime juice
  • 1 tsp granulated sugar
  • 1.5 oz white rum (we used The Naked Turtle)
  • ice
  • club soda

Muddle the berries, mint leaves, lime juice, and sugar in the bottom of a highball or Collins glass until the sugar dissolves and the berries break down. Add rum and stir. Add ice and top with club soda. Stir and garnish as desired. *Straws are helpful with all the mint and fruity bits in this one. Enjoy!
