I made this last night for 3 people using two limes (they were pretty big compared to the usual pathetically small ones sold in stores), splenda, 9 mint leaves (does that mean the same as a sprig? doubt it), and 1-1/2 tsp rum extract with enough water to equal 3 oz (we didn't have any rum). The drink was too bitter-tasting, but that easily could have been MY fault because I did the "microwave the limes for 20 seconds" trick to get more juice. Probably ending up cooking the little buggers. So tip: DON'T microwave the limes. Should try this with the REAL stuff (rum) next time, so I won't give stars right now because I probably totally messed up
Excellent beverage!! First time I've tried a mojito I really enjoyed it and I dont usually drink rum. Very refreshing drink. Love the fresh mint and lime tastes. Very good summertime drink. Thanks for posting this recipe Bev. *Cheers*
We thoroughly enjoyed these mojitos! They were easy to make and were simply delicious! I will use this recipe again! Thanks Bev!!
Excellent, excellent, excellent. A huge hit. WIll be making often
This is the perfect summer drink! It is very light and refreshing and the flavors compliment each other very well. We'll be using this recipe a lot this summer. Thanks for sharing it, Bev.
My DH and I enjoyed sipping on this refreshing minty drink while grilling our dinner outside last night. I used pineapple mint from my herb garden. As hot as it gets here in Texas in the summer, I'm sure we will be preparing this drink often! Thanks Bev for sharing!
My husband made these for all of us (Kiss~My~Tiara is my sister). They were so good. Very refreshing. The fresh herbs were great (we used spearmint, chocolate mint and pineapple mint, not orange mint.) We will definately be serving these over the summer! I also took a picture. Hope it shows up!( Mine was better!!!)
This was cool and refreshing on a HOT 90 degree day! We used a mixture of spearmint, chocolate mint and orange mint all picked from my sister's herb garden. GREAT cocktail recipe! Hope you like the picture Bev!
