Diner's Wine "Mojito"

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by threeovens

This cocktail was created to represent the Diners, Winers, and Chives team for ZWT #8. It represents our team because it is fresh, trendy, sweet, spicy, and also health conscious. Yes, I said it. It's got fresh fruit, fresh herbs, raw honey, and fresh ginger. Do the research. And we stick together and don't do anything without Chives.

Made this for the Beverage Dartboard in ZWT 8 - I didn't mind this, but I must say, I subbed some mint for the basil and omitted the chives the second time (Hey, I'm a perfectionist... hic) and it was more up my alley. Used a red wine blend I had. Thanks!
