It's Thursday, the weekend is almost here. So let's have a drink after dinner and enjoy a nice chick flick (sorry babe, gotta keep it girly one way or another..lol). One of my favvvvvvorite drinks is MOJITOS. It's a cool and refreshing summer drink. I just love the minty flavor. This is a really easy recipe. Try it- You might like it!!!
Things you'll need:
7 up soda
muddler (or something similar in shape- use your imagination)
** I am making a 2qt pitcher. So my measuring is based on that. Use your ingredients to taste. I prefer 1 1/2 shot glass of rum for every 12oz.**
Step 1: In your pitcher, take your mint leaves, half cup of sugar, and half cup of lemon juice . Use a muddler (I do not have a muddler, I am using a clean potato masher) to muddle the leaves. The idea of this is to release some of the mint flavor.
Step 2: Add club soda and 7up soda ( I like to use 7up for more lemon and lime taste). You want to use more 7up than club soda.
Step 3: Use a shot glass and add 8-9 shots of white rum (more or less depending on your preference)
Step 4: Cut lemon and lime into thin slices. Squeeze juices into pitcher. Add the slices to pitcher.
Step 5: Stir all the ingredients.
Step 6: Place pitcher in the refrigerator to chill...or pull a glass and add some ice cubes.
Step 7: Enjoy!!!
