As summer is coming… and our mint plant is going crazy… we are finding refreshing drinks to use our mint in. In addition to iced tea, we are making mojitos!
1/2 lime cut into four wedges
10-12 mint leaves
1 Tbs. sugar
1 1/2 white rum
1 diced strawberries
splash grenadine (true grenadine is actually pomegranate) If you want to leave this out, add another Tbs. of sugar.
1. take the mint leaves and put them in a sturdy cup with two of the wedges and pulverize them. We used the back of a wooden spoon.
2. add sugar, strawberries, and one more wedge of lime and smash some more.
3. Fill the cup with ice and add the grenadine and rum. Fill the remainder of the cup with club soda and garnish with the last wedge of lime, and perhaps another sprig or two of lime.
