For me, a really good mojito is made with simple sugar. That way, you are assured that the sugar is completely dissolved when you add the rum and club soda. This recipe also calls for mint infused simple sugar, which makes the minty taste even more intense. Prep time does not include time to cool the simple sugar.
I never have understood why most hot cocoa mixes call for store-bought chocolate drink mix as an ingredient. That just doesn't make sense to me. This verson is easier, cheaper, and in my opinion tastes better. Prep time does not include blending. The cook time is the time it takes to heat the water and stir in the cocoa. I have no idea on the serving size, so I gave it a wild guess.
Recipe created by Todd Wilbur www.TopSecretRecipes.com. Need a simple cocktail for a hot day when the thought of lemonade makes your mouth water? Try this one. You start crafting this new signature blender drink by making lemon syrup from scratch from lemon juice, sugar and water. Track down some limoncello--an Italian Lemon liqueur--and Smirnoff citrus vodka. Now you're just a press of the blender button away from being refreshed. I borrowed a friend's cookbook entitled Top Secret Restaurant Recipes 2 and wanted to put this recipe here so that I wouldn't lose it.
This is very similar to an Orange Julius. The recipe was clipped from our local newspaper many years ago, when there was massive media attention on finding the actual recipe for the original Orange Julius drink. This was a major contender, which soon gained its own popularity among those who preferred this blended drink over the actual Orange Julius drink.
You will never purchase the store-bought again after having this, this is also wonderful without the rum, but better if added, and for a mild rum flavor use only 1 cup you may increase to up to 2 cups --- plan ahead this needs a chilling time of 24 hours before serving --- *note* this is made using *cooked* eggs
