Hey all you thirsty mammas….or pappas….or people in general!
I’m adding a new item to the blog, “Thirsty Thursdays,” because sometimes alcohol just keeps us sane!
This week’s drink is one that is near and dear to my heart…especially since my husband is Cuban and I am an adopted member!
1 teaspoon powdered sugar
Juice from 1 lime (2 ounces)
4 mint leaves
1 sprig of mint
2 ounces White Rum (I like Bacardi)
2 ounces club soda
Place the mint leaves into a long mojito glass (often called a “collins” glass) and squeeze the juice from a cut lime over it. You’ll want about two ounces of lime juice, so it may not require all of the juice from a single lime.
Here are some variations… even though my personal fav is the traditional.
- Fresh Fruit and Fruit-flavored vodkas or rums, such as mango, raspberry, strawberry, or lychee are often substituted.
- A Mexican Mojito uses tequila instead of rum.
- A “Dirty Mojito” uses spiced rum, brown sugar syrup, key limes, crushed mint, and soda.
