A holiday twist on mojito's by chef John Besh. I am guessing at the serving size here

Top Review by Cook4_6

This had wonderful flavor, but it is very potent! There are 5 cups of alcohol in a drink that serves 4-6; it will knock you off your feet if you don't handle with care! I really liked the mixture of flavor, but my husband found them a bit too tart.
