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)
- 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!
