COCKTAIL HOUR – MOJITO

by Elmer Fudd

We are serving up delicious Mojito’s for this Friday’s cocktail hour. I always crave Mojito’s during the summer months, because they are cool and refreshing and they make for a great summertime refresher. So, with summer coming to an end, I wanted to pay homage to this Cuban minty rum refresher and put it in the cocktail hour spotlight.

Here’s a few tips to use when making Mojito’s:

  1. Be sure to use fresh squeezed lime juice, as it definitely makes a difference in the taste.
  2. When it comes to muddling – muddle the entire mint sprig to release the juice from the stem.
