As summer is rapidly approaching, I find myself more and more frequently craving a good mojito. While Mint Juleps are a good spring drink (check out our Facebook page for a good recipe), mojitos are perfect while sitting by the pool in the heat of the summer.
This Memorial Day, try whipping up your own batch of mojitos to celebrate the three day weekend. The recipe below is sure to help you and your neighbors enjoy your weekend afternoon.
Here’s what you need to make a pitcher of ginger mojitos:
1 cup of Verdant Kitchen’s White Hot Ginger Syrup
2 cups of muddled mint leaves
3 cups of white rum (if you choose to indulge)
1 1/2 cups of lime juice
Mint Sprigs (to garnish)
Mix the Ginger Syrup, muddled mint leaves, rum and lime juice in a pitcher. Chill in the fridge until you are ready to serve but make sure it’s chilled for at least an hour.
When you decide that you need a drink, pour about a cup of your mojito mix onto ice in a glass. Top it off with club soda and a mint sprig (just for looks)!
Easy as that!
Now if you are feeling really fancy, muddle a few blueberries into your mojito mix and top your drink off with a handful of fresh blueberries.
