Adventures in Everyday Entertaining
Happy Memorial Day!
I had the great pleasure of guest blogging over at Gourmet Veggie Mama earlier this month. In case you missed it, here is my recipe to make a pitcher of Classic Mojitos!
Nothing says refreshing cocktail for the spring and summer months like a classic mojito. The cool combination of mint and lime makes this drink the perfect companion to a breezy and sunny weekend afternoon. Plus, it is a great way to use all the mint that pops up in our garden. When it starts creeping, prune and make mojitos!
There are a lot of great interpretations and variations to the mojito — ones that bring flavors like strawberry, lemongrass, coconut, and blueberries to the table. However, to me, nothing beats a classic.
Classic Mojitos, Pitcher — modified from Easy Entertaining with Michael Chiarello
Muddle together lime juice, sugar and mint until mint leaves are bruised and sugar is dissolved. in a large pitcher.
Add ice to the pitcher, along with rum and club soda. Stir until combined.
Garnish with lime slices and pour!**
** I personally love the mint leaves loose in the drink, but some may choose to strain out as they are poured into glasses.
Sip and Enjoy!
