In order to warm up I am dreaming of hot summer days when Jen and I made mojitos on our back porch using homegrown mint from my herb garden! We played around with things and created our own little recipe using agave syrup.
J&J’s Summertime Mojitos
1.5 ounces of Rum
The juice of one lime (about 2 Tablespoons)
1 tablespoon Agave Nectar
4 mint leaves
Mint for garnish
1. Muddle your mint!
2. Mix in sugar and lime juice
3. Add rum
4. Strain into glasses, add ice and club soda
5. Make it pretty with some mint!
We used the agave nectar instead of superfine sugar because we had some and decided what the heck, what else are we going to use this for? (Sidenote: it's a great sweetener for plain oatmeal) It didn’t taste as sweet as the ones you can get at restaurants but I hear sugarcane syrup is key to making mojitos super yummy. Overall it was a great drink for a scorching summer day.
