My current favorite cocktail is the mojito. They are so refreshing! Not only do I love a classic mojito, but I also love the wonderful twists on them with different flavors. When the POM Wonderful folks shared this recipe with me it screamed out – yum, yum, yum!!!!
- 1 oz. POM Cherry 100% juice
- 1 1/2 oz. light rum
- 1/2 oz. fresh lime juice
- 3/4 oz. simple syrup (equal parts sugar and cold water dissolved together)
- 4 mint leaves
- Mint sprig for garnish
In the bottom of a double old-fashioned glass bruise the 4 mint leaves with the fresh lime juice and simple syrup. Add crushed ice then the POM Cherry and rum. Top with a splash of soda and stir. Garnish with the mint sprig.
I think I’m in love with this cocktail!!!!! What do you think about it?
