This was my first time having a mojito, I'm more of a girly frou frou type drinker, this was lovely for something different, tart, refreshing & using up some fresh mint from my garden, great stuff. Thanks!
Wonderfully refreshing! I love Mojitos and have tried many recipes. I have to say, I've never tried a Mojito I didn't like! : ) I started this recipe with a Simple Syrup, which I already had sitting in my refrigerator, eliminating having to dissolve the sugar. I muddled the mint in the Simple Syrup, adding the freshly squeezed lime juice and rum, staining into the pitcher. This is a delicious recipe which I am sure I will use often. Thank you so much, NCMysteryShopper!
This is a wonderful drink! The mint keeps the mouth all fresh, the lime lightens the heavier rum taste, the sugar balance out everything to perfection, and I just love it! I used gassy water instead of club soda, because that's what I have where I live, and made a long drink like NC Mystery Shopper shows in her photo! I will buy a nicely shaped pitcher for having my Mojitos outside, and will grow mint in pots close by the terrace for special effect! Superb!
First time I've tried a Mojito... and I see no reason to go beyond this recipe. Sure, it's a little bit of trouble making them, but the reward is worth it! Cool and refreshing, not really sweet at all. Great alternative to the margarita. I'm gonna have to grow more mint!
Words are not adequate to describe how much I enjoyed this drink. :)With the help of this recipe, I believe I managed to make an even better mojito than what I'd get at a bar. If you've never had a mojito, you really need to try one, and I recommend using this recipe. Thanks!
SI Senorita!! Cinco Stars!! Ours didn't look as pretty as the pictures show, but I only had dark rum! The mint we used was a 'citrus mint' and it was awesome in this drink!! Thanks Cheryl!! (Friday nights by the fire will never be the same if I don't make these!!)
Your "measurements" are all off. It's actually enough for one drink. lol OMG!!! This is so good. I had mint that was a little aged, but I really wanted to try this. I muddled and muddled, but not sure this older stuff was wanting to be muddled much, but it's so refreshing and delicious. I can't wait until weekend, with more FRESH mint!!! I'm in love.
